Low back pain in older women demands some
attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your
Fort Wayne chiropractor at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc offer attention! Women with back pain are a
special subset of our chiropractic practice with whom we love to work!
OLDER WOMEN AND Fort Wayne BACK PAIN
A recent report shared that low back
pain in older women is linked to abdominal truck
muscle weakness. The women included in this study also
experienced reduced mobility function. Even their knee extensor
muscle strength was weak. What links these issues together?
Muscle. Researchers explained that muscle weakness directly
tied low back pain, malnutrition, and reduced
mobility function in older women. The good news was highlighted
that exercise improved these issues. (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc sees over and over the benefit of exercise for our Fort Wayne back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
Fort Wayne chiropractic patients with back pain want
pain relief. That’s the aim of care. Our
patients often see other healthcare providers who recommend options like oral NSAIDs (number needed to treat (NNT) is
7 indicating 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 reported that these
options often deliver clinically meaningful pain decrease
as shown by the above number-needed-to-treat statistics.
Which works in the long run though? Exercise. The researchers wrote
that the only intervention that demonstrated
sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period came to an end
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, Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc encourages
our older female patients
to exercise. It is central to the chiropractic treatment
plan that incorporates simple exercises as the beginning
