reason of medical care visits to primary care and emergency settings.
Back pain is a top reason for worker compensation,
missed work hours, and lost productivity. 90% of back pain is
mechanical. 12 to 33% of people are reported to experience
back pain at any point in time, making back pain a main focus
of medical care and of sufferers’ attention and inattention to the daily
workings of life. (1) Back pain is costly and daily-life-limiting for many.
SPINAL STENOSIS AND WALKING
Walking is a such a day-to-day necessity. One
recent study stated that back and neck pain were
positively and significantly associated with workplace absenteeism mostly triggered
by difficulty standing, sitting, and walking. (2) Walking is a key
daily function! Back pain sufferers headed to surgery will do well to improve
their walking capacity before surgery. The better the walking capacity
before surgery. The better the walking capacity after
surgery. Lumbar spinal stenosis as a core issue for back
pain decreases walking and quality of life for its sufferers.

surgery in older adults, 40% of whom, even after back surgery, still
described walking disability. (3) Back And Neck Care Center encourages
walking for everyone!
