Plainville 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 a worthy goal for back pain sufferers seeking Plainville back pain relief. Layden Chiropractic encourages walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for prime walking ability and back pain relief.


Exercise is normally recommended to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented to be effective for relief of low back pain. But what about walking? Layden Chiropractic encourages Plainville back pain patients to not tag on the word “just” before “walking”! Walking alone is an amazingly healing activity. Walking is essential to everyday life. Walking is something many of us underappreciate until we can not walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we once did. A new study supports this: Walking more than ninety minutes a week was related to a lower risk of self-reported low back pain in adults over 50 years of age. 90 minutes is not bad; regular walking for 30 minutes daily three days a week is best. (1) Layden Chiropractic suggests that our Plainville chiropractic patients walk.


Visiting a licensed chiropractor improves walking distance. A new research article discovered that a comprehensive non-surgical training which included an exercise program guided by a chiropractor improved back and lower extremity fitness and lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and improved walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That is important! Layden Chiropractic uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 30 minutes three times a week. Having the ability to walk any distance for a half hour is important!
