Severna Park 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 target. Today, walking 90 minutes a week is an excellent aim for back pain sufferers seeking Severna Park back pain relief. Back And Neck Care Center suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for peak walking ability and back pain relief.


Exercise is frequently 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? Back And Neck Care Center urges Severna Park back pain patients to not tag on the word “just” before “walking”! Walking itself is an incredibly healing activity. Walking is essential to everyday life. Walking is one thing many of us take for granted until we can’t walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we used to. A recent research report corroborates this: Walking more than 90 minutes per week was related to a lower 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 best. (1) Back And Neck Care Center suggests that our Severna Park chiropractic patients walk.


Seeing a licensed chiropractor improves walking distance. A new research report found that a comprehensive non-operative training which included an exercise program guided by a chiropractor improved back and lower extremity fitness and lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and increased walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That’s important! Back And Neck Care Center uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Being able to walk any distance for thirty minutes is essential!
