Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise a few years ago. Speed may have been a goal at one
time. Distance may have been the aim. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is a worthy aim
for back pain sufferers seeking Tonawanda back pain relief. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation
encourages walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
optimal walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Tonawanda BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is normally recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
as being effective for relief of low back pain.
But what about walking? Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation
encourages Tonawanda back pain patients to not tag on
the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking alone is an amazingly healing activity. Walking is central
to everyday life. Walking is something many of us
undervalue until we can’t
walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we used to. A new study verifies
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 daily
three times a week is best. (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation suggests
that our Tonawanda chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Seeing a licensed chiropractor improves
walking distance. A recent report found
that an all-inclusive non-surgical
training which included an exercise program directed
by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, decreased pain and improved
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That’s significant! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 30 minutes
three times a week. Having the ability to walk any distance for thirty minutes is valuable!
