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 FOR Preston 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.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
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!
