Preston Back Pain Benefits from Walking and Chiropractic Care

Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise when you were younger. Speed may have been a goal at one time. Distance may have been the aim. Today, walking 90 minutes a week is a commendable target for back pain sufferers seeking Preston back pain relief. Chiropractic Associates encourages walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for optimal walking ability and back pain relief.


Exercise is usually recommended to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented to be effective for low back pain relief. But walking alone is not talked about as much? Chiropractic Associates urges Preston back pain patients to not tag on the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking alone is an incredibly healing activity. Walking is central to everyday life. Walking is one thing so many of us take for granted until we can’t walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we used to. A recent research report corroborates this: Walking more than ninety minutes per week was related to a lesser risk of self-reported low back pain in adults over 50 years of age. 90 minutes is not much; regular walking for 30 minutes daily three times a week is ideal. (1) Chiropractic Associates suggests that our Preston chiropractic patients walk.


Seeing a licensed chiropractor improves walking distance. A recent article found that an all-inclusive non-operative training which involved an exercise program guided by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and improved walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That is important! Chiropractic Associates uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Having the ability to walk any distance for thirty minutes is important!
