Exercise to Strengthen Muscle in Women Helps with Buffalo, NY Back Pain Relief

Low back pain in older women requires some attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your Buffalo, NY chiropractor at Disc Centers Of America give it! Women who suffer back pain are a special subset of our chiropractic practice with whom we love to work!


A recent report shared 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 ties these concerns together? Muscle. Researchers described that muscle weakness directly linked low back pain, malnutrition, and reduced mobility function in older women. The good news was emphasized that exercise enhanced these factors. (1) Disc Centers Of America  witnesses over and over the benefit of exercise for our Buffalo, NY back pain patients.


Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients with back pain seek pain relief. That is the aim of care. Our patients often try other healthcare options like oral NSAIDs (number needed to treat (NNT) is 7 indicating sever 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 often deliver clinically meaningful pain reduction as demonstrated by the above number-needed-to-treat statistics. Which works over time though? Exercise. The researchers explained that the only intervention that showed sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period came to an end was exercise. (2) We share this to foster the practice of exercise for all our Buffalo, NY back pain (and neck pain) patients. For purposes of this article about women with low back pain, Disc Centers Of America urges our older women patients to exercise. It’s part of the chiropractic treatment plan that involves simple exercises as the starting point!
