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!
OLDER WOMEN AND Colorado Springs BACK PAIN
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.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
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
