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

Low back pain in older women requires some attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your Montreal chiropractor at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic provide that attention! Women who experience 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 reduced mobility function. Even their knee extensor muscle strength was weak. What ties these concerns together? Muscle. Researchers described that muscle weakness clearly tied low back pain, malnutrition, and decreased mobility function in older women. The good news was highlighted that exercise improved these issues. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic  sees over and over the benefit of exercise for our Montreal back pain patients.


Montreal chiropractic patients with back pain seek pain relief. That is the objective of care. Our patients often see other healthcare providers who recommend options like oral NSAIDs (number needed to treat (NNT) is 7 indicating sever 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 decrease as shown by the above number-needed-to-treat statistics. Which works in the long run though? Exercise. The researchers wrote that the one intervention that showed sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period came to an end was exercise. (2) We share this to encourage exercise for all our Montreal back pain (and neck pain) patients. Since this is an article focused about women with low back pain, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic encourages our older women patients to exercise. It’s part of the chiropractic treatment plan that includes simple exercises as the starting point!
