and neck pain sufferers to walk. Walking is easy and effective in the management of pain. Walks don’t have be marathons! A walk in the park or around the block does wonders!
BACK PAIN’S DAILY IMPACT
$200 billion dollars a year go to
back pain management. Back pain is a top and common
reason of medical care visits to primary care and emergency settings.
Back pain is a top cause for worker compensation,
missed work hours, and lost productivity. 90% of back pain is
mechanical. 12 to 33% of people are stated to experience
back pain at any point in time, making back pain a main focus
of medical care and of sufferers’ attention and inattention to the day-to-day
events of life. (1) Back pain is expensive and daily-life-limiting for many.
SPINAL STENOSIS AND WALKING
Walking is a such a day-to-day necessity. One
recent study stated that back and neck pain were
positively and significantly associated with workplace absenteeism mostly triggered
by difficulty standing, sitting, and walking. (2) Walking is a vital
daily function! Back pain sufferers headed to surgery will do well to improve
their walking capacity before surgery. The greater the walking capacity
pre-surgery. The better the walking capacity afterwards. Lumbar spinal stenosis as an underlying issue for back
pain reduces walking and quality of life for its sufferers.
Lumbar spinal stenosis is the main sign for spinal
surgery in older adults, 40% of whom, even post-back surgery, still
stated walking disability. (3) Chiropractic Care encourages
walking for everyone!
