Low back pain in older women demands some
attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your
Toronto chiropractor at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre provide
that attention! Women with back pain are a
special group of our chiropractic practice with whom we are
happy to work!
OLDER WOMEN AND Toronto BACK PAIN
A recent study reported that low back
pain in older women stems from abdominal truck
muscle weakness. The women included in this study also
experienced reduced mobility function. Even their knee extensor
muscle strength was weak. What links these issues together?
Muscle. Researchers described that muscle weakness directly
tied low back pain, malnutrition, and reduced
mobility function in older women. The good news was highlighted
that exercise improved these issues. (1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre sees over and over the benefit of exercise for our Toronto back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
Toronto chiropractic patients with back pain desire
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 7 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 only 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 Toronto back pain (and neck
pain) patients. Since this is an article focused
about women with low back pain, Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre urges
our female patients who are a little older
to exercise. It’s central to the chiropractic treatment
plan that incorporates simple exercises as the beginning
