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

March 23, 2021

Low back pain in older women requires some attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your Augusta chiropractor at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic provide that attention! Women who experience back pain are a special group of our chiropractic practice with whom we are happy to work!


A recent study reported that low back pain in 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 links these issues together? Muscle. Researchers described that muscle weakness clearly linked low back pain, malnutrition, and decreased mobility function in older women. The good news was highlighted that exercise enhanced these factors. (1) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic  witnesses over and over the benefit of exercise for our Augusta back pain patients.


Augusta chiropractic patients with back pain seek pain relief. That is the goal of care. Our patients often see other healthcare providers who recommend options like oral NSAIDs (number needed to treat (NNT) is 7 meaning 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 found that these options often deliver clinically meaningful pain decrease as demonstrated by the above number-needed-to-treat stats. Which works in the long run though? Exercise. The researchers explained that the single intervention that demonstrated sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period ended was exercise. (2) We present this to encourage exercise for all our Augusta back pain (and neck pain) patients. For purposes of this article about women with low back pain, Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic encourages our female patients who are a little older to exercise. It’s central to the chiropractic treatment plan that involves simple exercises as the beginning point!
