Tonawanda Back Pain Benefits from Walking and Chiropractic Care

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 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.


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!
