Low back pain in older women requires some
attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your
New Roads chiropractor at New Roads Chiropractic Center give it! Women who experience back pain are a
special group of our chiropractic practice with whom we love to work!
OLDER WOMEN AND New Roads BACK PAIN
A recent study reported that low back
pain among 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 links these concerns together?
Muscle. Researchers explained that muscle weakness directly
tied low back pain, malnutrition, and reduced
mobility function in older women. The good news was emphasized
that exercise enhanced these issues. (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center witnesses over and over the benefit of exercise for our New Roads back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
New Roads chiropractic patients with back pain desire

patients often try

7 meaning 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 often deliver clinically meaningful pain reduction
as demonstrated by the above number-needed-to-treat statistics.
Which works over time though? Exercise. The researchers wrote
that the only intervention that showed
sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period came to an end
was exercise. (2) We present this to foster the
practice of exercise for all our New Roads back pain (and neck
pain) patients. Since this is an article focused
about women with low back pain, New Roads Chiropractic Center urges
our female patients who are a little older
to exercise. It’s central to the chiropractic treatment
plan that involves simple exercises as the starting
