Williamson 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 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 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.


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 thirty minutes is valuable!
