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!
OLDER WOMEN AND Montreal 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 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.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
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
