Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise when
you were younger. Speed may have been a goal once. Distance may have been the aim. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is a worthy target
for back pain sufferers seeking Millville back pain relief. Wilson Family Chiropractic
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
peak walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Millville BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is frequently recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
as being effective for relief of low back pain.
But what about walking? Wilson Family Chiropractic
urges Millville 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
undervalue until we can’t
walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we used to. A new study corroborates
this: Walking more than ninety minutes a
week was associated with a lower risk of self-reported
low back pain in adults over 50 years of age.
90 minutes is not bad; regular walking for 30 minutes a day
three times a week is ideal. (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic suggests
that our Millville chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Seeing a licensed chiropractor increases
walking distance. A new research report discovered
that an all-inclusive non-surgical
training which involved an exercise program directed
by a chiropractor improved back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and increased
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That’s important! Wilson Family Chiropractic uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 30 minutes
three times a week. Having the ability to walk any distance for thirty minutes is valuable!
