Just walk! It’s simple. It’s cheap. It’s useful. Walking is a great way to get healthy and remain healthy. Walking is an amazing way to discover relief from chronic pain and back pain. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR's Colorado Springs chiropractic back pain specialist often advises walking as one of the initial activities to try to Colorado Springs back pain patients. Here’s why…


It may seem strange when The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR asks about your sitting habits when you visit The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR for Colorado Springs back pain treatment and relief, but it is not! It is well known and now even supported by research that sitting for lengthier periods of time is a risk factor for low back pain. Recent research reports more emphatically that extensive sitting and low physical activity boosts low back pain risk even more. (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR’s curiosity about your sitting habits is logical! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR’s recommendation to walk is, too.

Walking is helpful for chronic musculoskeletal pain sufferers as those with low back pain, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. Walking is a helpful way of exercise for chronic pain relief and is associated with significant improvements in pain and function.
