and neck pain sufferers to walk. Walking is simple and effective in the management of pain. Walks do not have be crazy

BACK PAIN’S DAILY IMPACT

back pain management. Back pain is a top and common
cause of medical care visits to primary care and emergency settings.
Back pain is the most common cause for worker compensation,
missed work hours, and lost productivity. 90% of back pain is
mechanical. 12 to 33% of people are stated to have had
back pain at any point in time, making back pain a primary emphasis
of medical care and of sufferers’ attention and inattention to the daily
workings of life. (1) Back pain is expensive and quality
of life altering for many.
SPINAL STENOSIS AND WALKING
Walking is a such a day-to-day necessity. One
recent study stated that back and neck pain were
positively and significantly associated with workplace absenteeism mostly caused
by difficulty standing, sitting, and walking. (2) Walking is a critical
daily function! Back pain sufferers headed to surgery will do well to improve
their walking capacity before surgery. The better the walking capacity
pre-surgery. The better the walking capacity after
surgery. Lumbar spinal stenosis as a core issue for back
pain decreases walking and quality of life for its sufferers.

surgery in older adults, 40% of whom, even after back surgery, still
described walking disability. (3) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center encourages
walking for everyone!
