Low back pain in older women requires some
attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your
Ashburn chiropractor at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn provide
that attention! Women who experience back pain are a
special subset of our chiropractic practice with whom we are
happy to work!
OLDER WOMEN AND Ashburn BACK PAIN
A recent report shared that low back
pain among 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 ties these concerns together?
Muscle. Researchers explained 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 factors. (1) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn witnesses over and over the benefit of exercise for our Ashburn back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
Ashburn chiropractic patients with back pain desire
pain relief. That’s the aim 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 one
patient to report benefit) and SNRIs like duloxetine (NNT: 10)
and exercise (NNT: 7). A recent study reported that these
options many times deliver clinically meaningful pain decrease
as shown by the above number-needed-to-treat stats.
Which works in the long run though? Exercise. The researchers explained
that the single intervention that showed
sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period ended
was exercise. (2) We share this to encourage exercise for all our Ashburn back pain (and neck
pain) patients. For purposes of this article
about women with low back pain, Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn urges
our older female patients
to exercise. It is central to the chiropractic treatment
plan that incorporates simple exercises as the beginning
