Low back pain in older women demands some
attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your
Pensacola chiropractor at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center offer attention! Women with back pain are a
special subset of our chiropractic practice with whom we are
happy to work!
OLDER WOMEN AND Pensacola BACK PAIN
A recent study reported that low back
pain in older women is linked to abdominal truck
muscle weakness. The women described in this study also
experienced decreased mobility function. Even their knee extensor
muscle strength was weak. What ties these issues together?
Muscle. Researchers described that muscle weakness directly
linked low back pain, malnutrition, and decreased
mobility function in older women. The good news was highlighted
that exercise enhanced these factors. (1) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center sees over and over the benefit of exercise for our Pensacola back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
Pensacola chiropractic patients with back pain want
pain relief. That is the aim of care. Our
patients often try
other healthcare options like oral NSAIDs (number needed to treat (NNT) is
7 meaning sever patients need to be treated for one
patient to report benefit) and SNRIs like duloxetine (NNT: 10)
and exercise (NNT: 7). A new study found that these
options often deliver clinically meaningful pain decrease
as demonstrated 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 came to an end
was exercise. (2) We share this to foster the
practice of exercise for all our Pensacola back pain (and neck
pain) patients. Since this is an article focused
on women with low back pain, Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center urges
our older women patients
to exercise. It is part of the chiropractic treatment
plan that incorporates simple exercises as the beginning
