Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise a few years ago. Speed may have been a goal once. Distance may have been the aim. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is a commendable goal
for back pain sufferers seeking West Palm Beach back pain relief. Chiropractic Care
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
prime walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR West Palm Beach BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is usually recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
to be effective for low back pain relief.
But walking alone is not talked about as much? Chiropractic Care
encourages West Palm Beach back pain patients to not add
the word “just” before “walking”! Walking itself is an amazingly healing activity. Walking is fundamental
to everyday life. Walking is one thing many of us
undervalue until we can not
walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we once
did. A new 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 who are 50 years old and over.
90 minutes is not much; regular walking for 30 minutes daily
three days a week is optimal. (1) Chiropractic Care suggests
that our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Seeing a licensed chiropractor increases
walking distance. A recent article discovered
that an all-inclusive non-surgical
training which involved an exercise program directed
by a chiropractor improved back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, decreased pain and increased
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That
is important! Chiropractic Care uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 30 minutes
three times a week. Being
able to walk any distance for a half hour is essential!
