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 aim. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is a worthy aim
for back pain sufferers seeking St. Francisville back pain relief. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
optimal walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR St. Francisville BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is usually 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? Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville
urges St. Francisville back pain patients to not add
the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking alone is an
incredibly healing activity. Walking is fundamental
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 study verifies
this: Walking more than an hour and a half each
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 best. (1) Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville suggests
that our St. Francisville chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Visiting a licensed chiropractor increases
walking distance. A recent report found
that a comprehensive non-operative
training which involved an exercise program guided
by a chiropractor improved back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and improved
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That’s significant! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Having the ability to walk any distance for a half hour is important!
