Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise a few years ago. Speed may have been a goal once. Distance may have been the aim. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is a worthy goal
for back pain sufferers seeking Murfreesboro back pain relief. Most Chiropractic Clinic
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
optimal walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Murfreesboro BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is usually recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
as being effective for low back pain relief.
But walking alone is not talked about as much? Most Chiropractic Clinic
encourages Murfreesboro back pain patients to not tag on
the word “just” before “walking”! Walking itself is a remarkably healing activity. Walking is essential
to everyday life. Walking is something so many of us
undervalue until we can not
walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we once
did. A recent study corroborates
this: Walking more than an hour and a half 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 a day
three days a week is best. (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic suggests
that our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Seeing a licensed chiropractor increases
walking distance. A new research article found
that an all-inclusive non-surgical
training which involved an exercise program directed
by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, decreased pain and improved
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That
is significant! Most Chiropractic Clinic uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 30 minutes
three times a week. Having the ability to walk any distance for a half hour is important!
