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 target. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is a commendable target
for back pain sufferers seeking Carrolltown back pain relief. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation
encourages walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
prime walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Carrolltown BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is normally recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
to be effective for relief of low back pain.
But walking alone is not talked about as much? Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation
urges Carrolltown back pain patients to not tag on
the word “just” before “walking”! Walking itself is a remarkably healing activity. Walking is fundamental
to everyday life. Walking is one thing so many of us
underappreciate until we can not
walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we once
did. A new research report supports
this: Walking more than an hour and a half a
week was related to 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 days a week is best. (1) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation suggests
that our Carrolltown chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Seeing a licensed chiropractor improves
walking distance. A recent report discovered
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, eased pain and improved
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That
is significant! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Being
able to walk any distance for a half hour is important!
