OLDER WOMEN AND Baton Rouge BACK PAIN
A recent study reported that low back
pain in older women stems from abdominal truck
muscle weakness. The women included in this study also
experienced reduced mobility function. Even their knee extensor

tied low back pain, malnutrition, and decreased
mobility function in older women. The good news was highlighted
that exercise enhanced these issues. (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation sees over and over the benefit of exercise for our Baton Rouge back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF

7 indicating sever patients need to be treated for one
patient to experience benefit) and SNRIs like duloxetine (NNT: 10)
and exercise (NNT: 7). A new study found that these
options often deliver clinically meaningful pain decrease
as shown by the above number-needed-to-treat stats.

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

pain) patients. Since this is an article focused

our older women patients
