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!
OLDER WOMEN AND Paramus BACK PAIN
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 highlighted
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.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
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 meaning 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 came to an end
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
