attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your

OLDER WOMEN AND Carrolltown BACK PAIN
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 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 issues. (1) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation sees over and over the benefit of exercise for our Carrolltown back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
Carrolltown chiropractic patients with back pain seek
pain relief. That’s the aim of care. Our
patients frequently 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 new study found that these
options often deliver clinically meaningful pain reduction
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 demonstrated
sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period ended
was exercise. (2) We present this to encourage exercise for all our Carrolltown back pain (and neck
pain) patients. For purposes of this article

our female patients who are a little older
to exercise. It’s part of the chiropractic treatment
plan that includes simple exercises as the starting
