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 FOR Severna Park 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 an hour and a half 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.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
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 a half hour is essential!
