Minster 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 at one time. Distance may have been the target. Today, walking 90 minutes a week is an excellent aim for back pain sufferers seeking Minster back pain relief. Minster Chiropractic Center encourages walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for peak 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? Minster Chiropractic Center urges Minster back pain patients to not add the word “just” before “walking”! Walking alone is an amazingly healing activity. Walking is basic to everyday life. Walking is one thing so many of us take for granted until we can’t walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we once did. A recent research report verifies this: Walking more than an hour and a half a week was associated with 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 a day three times a week is best. (1) Minster Chiropractic Center suggests that our Minster chiropractic patients walk.


Visiting a licensed chiropractor improves walking distance. A recent report discovered that a comprehensive non-surgical training which included an exercise program directed by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and improved walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That’s significant! Minster Chiropractic Center uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 30 minutes three times a week. Being able to walk any distance for a half hour is essential!
