Exercise to Strengthen Muscle in Women Helps with Groton Back Pain Relief

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!


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.


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 statistics. 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 female patients who are a little older to exercise. It’s central to the chiropractic treatment plan that includes simple exercises as the beginning point!
