OLDER WOMEN AND San Jose BACK PAIN
A recent report shared that low back
pain among older women is linked to abdominal truck
muscle weakness. The women described in this study also
experienced decreased mobility function. Even their knee extensor
muscle strength was weak. What links these concerns together?
Muscle. Researchers described that muscle weakness clearly
tied low back pain, malnutrition, and reduced
mobility function in older women. The good news was emphasized
that exercise improved these issues. (1) Chiropractic Solutions witnesses over and over the benefit of exercise for our San Jose back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
San Jose chiropractic patients with back pain desire
pain relief. That’s the aim of care. Our
patients often try

7 meaning 7 patients need to be treated for one
patient to experience benefit) and SNRIs like duloxetine (NNT: 10)
and exercise (NNT: 7). A new study reported that these
options often deliver clinically meaningful pain reduction
as shown by the above number-needed-to-treat statistics.
Which works in the long run though? Exercise. The researchers wrote
that the single 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 San Jose back pain (and neck
pain) patients. For purposes of this article

our older female patients
to exercise. It’s central to the chiropractic treatment
plan that incorporates simple exercises as the starting
