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 FOR Plainville 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 an hour and a half 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.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
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, decreased 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!
