West Palm Beach 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 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 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 bad; regular walking for 30 minutes daily three days a week is optimal. (1) Chiropractic Care suggests that our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients walk.


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!
