Chicago Walking is Good for You and Your Back!

Just walk. That’s it. Walk a little today. Just walk the extent that you can. If walking just 3 minutes is all for you, awesome! Walk 5 minutes the next day. You will be astonished at how quickly you’ll feel better, your back will feel better, your outlook will be improved. Walking is a popular recommendation at Chiropractic Care for our Chicago chiropractic patients suffering with low back pain as well as those Chicago chiropractic patients who have other issues, too. Walking is a simple, economic, effective activity for Chicago chiropractic patients while Chiropractic Care recognizes that walking may be an activity some Chicago chiropractic patients may find intimidating when they are in pain. Chiropractic Care appreciates that and will be by your side as you begin walking.


In a recent analysis of five randomized clinical controlled trials, researchers share that walking may be thought of as an alternative to other physical activity exercise. Walking makes better pain, disability and fear-avoidance in chronic low back pain patients. (Chiropractic Care discerns that some Chicago chiropractic patients fear movement like walking as they are concerned their back pain might be aggravated. Chicago low back pain patients will avoid exercise, avoid walking, avoid moving for fear of pain. If this is a familiar feeling for you, please talk with your Chicago chiropractor at Chiropractic Care.) Plus walking is inexpensive.
