BACK PAIN’S DAILY IMPACT
$200 billion dollars a year go to
back pain management. Back pain is a leading and widespread
reason of medical care visits to primary care and emergency settings.
Back pain is the most common reason for worker compensation,
missed work hours, and lost productivity. 90% of back pain is
mechanical. 12 to 33% of people are stated to have had
back pain at any point in time, making back pain a main emphasis
of medical care and of sufferers’ attention and inattention to the day-to-day
events of life. (1) Back pain is costly and quality
of life altering for many.
SPINAL STENOSIS AND WALKING
Walking is a such a day-to-day necessity. One
newer 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 boost
their walking capacity before surgery. The greater the walking capacity
before surgery. The better the walking capacity afterwards. Lumbar spinal stenosis as a core issue for back
pain decreases walking and quality of life for its sufferers.
Lumbar spinal stenosis is the main signal for spinal
surgery in older adults, 40% of whom, even post-back surgery, still
reported walking disability. (3) Layden Chiropractic urges
walking for everyone!

open spaces, and water features were highly valued.
Walking/bike trails, basketball hoops, sports/climbing walls were reported as physical activity encouraging. Seating, tables, and picnic
areas were noted as essential for social
