New Roads Back Pain Benefits from Walking and Chiropractic Care

Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise when you were younger. Speed may have been a goal at one time. Distance may have been the target. Today, walking 90 minutes a week is a commendable goal for back pain sufferers seeking New Roads back pain relief. New Roads Chiropractic Center suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for peak walking ability and back pain relief.


Exercise is commonly recommended to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented to be effective for low back pain relief. But what about walking? New Roads Chiropractic Center encourages New Roads back pain patients to not tag on the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking alone is a remarkably healing activity. Walking is essential to everyday life. Walking is one thing many of us undervalue until we can’t walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we once did. A new study corroborates this: Walking more than 90 minutes each week was related to a lesser risk of self-reported low back pain in adults over 50 years of age. 90 minutes is not much; regular walking for 30 minutes a day three days a week is ideal. (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center suggests that our New Roads chiropractic patients walk.


Visiting a licensed chiropractor improves walking distance. A recent article found that a comprehensive non-surgical training which involved an exercise program directed by a chiropractor improved back and lower extremity fitness and lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and increased walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That is significant! New Roads Chiropractic Center uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Having the ability to walk any distance for a half hour is valuable!
