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

Low back pain in older women demands some attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your Williamson chiropractor at Apple Country Chiropractic offer attention! 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 stems from abdominal truck muscle weakness. The women described in this study also experienced decreased mobility function. Even their knee extensor muscle strength was weak. What ties these issues together? Muscle. Researchers described that muscle weakness directly linked low back pain, malnutrition, and reduced mobility function in older women. The good news was highlighted that exercise improved these factors. (1) Apple Country Chiropractic  sees over and over the benefit of exercise for our Williamson back pain patients.


Williamson 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 meaning 7 patients need to be treated for 1 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 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 present this to foster the practice of exercise for all our Williamson back pain (and neck pain) patients. Since this is an article focused about women with low back pain, Apple Country Chiropractic urges our female patients who are a little older to exercise. It’s part of the chiropractic treatment plan that involves simple exercises as the beginning point!
