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 target. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is an excellent goal
for back pain sufferers seeking Williamson back pain relief. Apple Country Chiropractic
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
optimal walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Williamson BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is frequently recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
to be effective for relief of low back pain.
But walking alone is not talked about as much? Apple Country Chiropractic
urges Williamson back pain patients to not add
the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking itself is an amazingly healing activity. Walking is central
to everyday life. Walking is one thing so many of us
underappreciate until we can not
walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we used to. A recent research report supports
this: Walking more than an hour and a half per
week was related to a lesser risk of self-reported
low back pain in adults over 50 years of age.
90 minutes is not bad; regular walking for 30 minutes daily
three days a week is ideal. (1) Apple Country Chiropractic suggests
that our Williamson chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Visiting a licensed chiropractor increases
walking distance. A new research article discovered
that a comprehensive non-operative
training which included an exercise program directed
by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and improved
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That
is significant! Apple Country Chiropractic uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Being
able to walk any distance for a half hour is valuable!
