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 FOR Minster 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.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
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!
