Millville 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 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 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.


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!
