OLDER WOMEN AND Buffalo, NY BACK PAIN
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.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients with back pain seek
pain relief. That is the aim of care. Our
patients often try

7 indicating sever patients need to be treated for one

options often deliver clinically meaningful pain reduction

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
