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

Low back pain in older women requires some attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your Paramus chiropractor at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center give it! Women with back pain are a special subset of our chiropractic practice with whom we love to work!


A recent study reported that low back pain in older women stems from abdominal truck muscle weakness. The women included in this study also experienced decreased mobility function. Even their knee extensor muscle strength was weak. What links these concerns together? Muscle. Researchers described that muscle weakness clearly linked low back pain, malnutrition, and decreased mobility function in older women. The good news was emphasized that exercise enhanced these issues. (1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center  witnesses over and over the benefit of exercise for our Paramus back pain patients.


Paramus chiropractic patients with back pain desire pain relief. That is the objective of care. Our patients often try other healthcare options like oral NSAIDs (number needed to treat (NNT) is 7 indicating 7 patients need to be treated for 1 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 stats. Which works in the long run though? Exercise. The researchers explained that the single 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 Paramus back pain (and neck pain) patients. Since this is an article focused about women with low back pain, Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center encourages our older female patients to exercise. It is central to the chiropractic treatment plan that includes simple exercises as the beginning point!
