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 FOR New Roads 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 an hour and a half 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.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
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!
