Murfreesboro Back Pain Benefits from Walking and Chiropractic Care

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 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.


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!
