Burlington and Hamilton Back Pain Benefits from Walking and Chiropractic Care

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 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.


Visiting a licensed chiropractor increases walking distance. A recent report discovered that an all-inclusive non-surgical training which included 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 30 minutes is important!
