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 an excellent aim
for back pain sufferers seeking Pensacola back pain relief. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
peak walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Pensacola 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? Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center
encourages Pensacola back pain patients to not add
the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking itself is an amazingly healing activity. Walking is fundamental
to everyday life. Walking is something so many of us
underappreciate until we can not
walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we used to. A recent study supports
this: Walking more than an hour and a half each
week was related to a lesser 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center suggests
that our Pensacola chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Seeing a licensed chiropractor increases
walking distance. A new research report found
that an all-inclusive non-operative
training which included an exercise program guided
by a chiropractor improved back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, decreased pain and increased
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That
is significant! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 30 minutes
three times a week. Being
able to walk any distance for a half hour is essential!
