Low back pain in older women requires some
attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your
Groton chiropractor at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office give it! Women who suffer back pain are a
special group of our chiropractic practice with whom we love to work!
OLDER WOMEN AND Groton BACK PAIN
A recent study reported 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 ties these issues together?
Muscle. Researchers explained that muscle weakness clearly
linked low back pain, malnutrition, and decreased
mobility function in older women. The good news was emphasized
that exercise improved these issues. (1) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office sees over and over the benefit of exercise for our Groton back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
Groton chiropractic patients with back pain seek
pain relief. That’s the aim of care. Our
patients frequently try
other healthcare options like oral NSAIDs (number needed to treat (NNT) is
7 indicating 7 patients need to be treated for one
patient to experience benefit) and SNRIs like duloxetine (NNT: 10)
and exercise (NNT: 7). A new study reported that these
options many times deliver clinically meaningful pain reduction
as demonstrated by the above number-needed-to-treat stats.
Which works in the long run though? Exercise. The researchers explained
that the only intervention that demonstrated
sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period ended
was exercise. (2) We share this to foster the
practice of exercise for all our Groton back pain (and neck
pain) patients. Since this is an article focused
about women with low back pain, Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office urges
our older female patients
to exercise. It’s central to the chiropractic treatment
plan that includes simple exercises as the beginning
