Exercise to Strengthen Muscle in Women Helps with Fort Wayne Back Pain Relief

Low back pain in older women requires some attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic offer attention! Women who suffer back pain are a special subset of our chiropractic practice with whom we are happy to work!


A recent study reported that low back pain among older women stems from abdominal truck muscle weakness. The women included in this study also experienced decreased mobility function. Even their knee extensor muscle strength was weak. What links these issues together? Muscle. Researchers described that muscle weakness clearly linked low back pain, malnutrition, and decreased mobility function in older women. The good news was emphasized that exercise enhanced these factors. (1) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic  witnesses over and over the benefit of exercise for our Fort Wayne back pain patients.


Fort Wayne chiropractic patients with back pain want pain relief. That’s the goal of care. Our patients frequently see other healthcare providers who recommend options like oral NSAIDs (number needed to treat (NNT) is 7 meaning 7 patients need to be treated for 1 patient to report benefit) and SNRIs like duloxetine (NNT: 10) and exercise (NNT: 7). A recent study found that these options many times deliver clinically meaningful pain reduction as shown by the above number-needed-to-treat stats. Which works over time though? Exercise. The researchers explained that the only intervention that showed sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period ended was exercise. (2) We share this to encourage exercise for all our Fort Wayne back pain (and neck pain) patients. Since this is an article focused on women with low back pain, Aaron Chiropractic Clinic urges our older female patients to exercise. It is part of the chiropractic treatment plan that incorporates simple exercises as the starting point!
