Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise when
you were younger. Speed may have been a goal once. Distance may have been the aim. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is an excellent goal
for back pain sufferers seeking Burlington and Hamilton back pain relief. Spinal Care Clinic
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
peak walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Burlington and Hamilton BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is usually recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
as being effective for low back pain relief.
But walking alone is not talked about as much? Spinal Care Clinic
urges Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients to not tag on
the word “just” before “walking”! Walking itself is an
incredibly healing activity. Walking is fundamental
to everyday life. Walking is something many of us
undervalue until we can’t
walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we once
did. A new research report corroborates
this: Walking more than 90 minutes a
week was associated with a lesser risk of self-reported
low back pain in adults over 50 years of age.
90 minutes is not bad; regular walking for 30 minutes a day
three days a week is optimal. (1) Spinal Care Clinic suggests
that our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Visiting a licensed chiropractor increases
walking distance. A recent report 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, eased pain and improved
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That
is significant! Spinal Care Clinic uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 30 minutes
three times a week. Being
able to walk any distance for a half hour is important!
