Exercise to Strengthen Muscle in Women Helps with Colorado Springs Back Pain Relief

Low back pain in older women demands some attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your Colorado Springs chiropractor at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR provide that attention! Women who suffer back pain are a special subset of our chiropractic practice with whom we are happy to work!


A recent report shared that low back pain among older women is linked to 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 directly linked low back pain, malnutrition, and decreased mobility function in older women. The good news was highlighted that exercise improved these issues. (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR  sees over and over the benefit of exercise for our Colorado Springs back pain patients.


Colorado Springs chiropractic patients with back pain want pain relief. That is the aim of care. Our patients frequently try other healthcare options like oral NSAIDs (number needed to treat (NNT) is 7 indicating sever patients need to be treated for 1 patient to report benefit) and SNRIs like duloxetine (NNT: 10) and exercise (NNT: 7). A recent study found that these options many times deliver clinically meaningful pain reduction as demonstrated by the above number-needed-to-treat stats. Which works over time though? Exercise. The researchers wrote 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 Colorado Springs back pain (and neck pain) patients. Since this is an article focused about women with low back pain, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR encourages our older women patients to exercise. It is part of the chiropractic treatment plan that incorporates simple exercises as the starting point!
