Exercise to Strengthen Muscle in Women Helps with Burlington and Hamilton Back Pain Relief

Low back pain in older women requires some attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor at Spinal Care Clinic offer attention! Women with back pain are a special group of our chiropractic practice with whom we are happy to work!

OLDER WOMEN AND Burlington and Hamilton BACK PAIN

A recent report shared that low back pain among older women stems from abdominal truck muscle weakness. The women described in this study also experienced reduced mobility function. Even their knee extensor muscle strength was weak. What ties these concerns together? Muscle. Researchers explained that muscle weakness directly linked low back pain, malnutrition, and decreased mobility function in older women. The good news was emphasized that exercise improved these issues. (1) Spinal Care Clinic  sees over and over the benefit of exercise for our Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients.


Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients with back pain seek pain relief. That’s the objective of care. Our patients often see other healthcare providers who recommend 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 demonstrated by the above number-needed-to-treat stats. Which works in the long run though? Exercise. The researchers wrote that the one intervention that showed 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 Burlington and Hamilton back pain (and neck pain) patients. Since this is an article focused on women with low back pain, Spinal Care Clinic urges our female patients who are a little older to exercise. It is part of the chiropractic treatment plan that includes simple exercises as the beginning point!
