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…
WALK MORE. SIT LESS.
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.

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. (2) Exercise and physical
activities like muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise have lots
of support for effectively dealing with low back pain.
Weekly walking is gaining more and more approval
to be added to this list of effective activities.
For over-50 year olds, weekly walking of 90 minutes a week reduces
the risk of low back pain. Elongated walking sessions are seemingly
better. Routine walking for a longer time for more than 3 days a week is significantly affiliated
with lower low back pain risk. (3) Wonderfully,
a walking program is research-documented to have the lowest
costs and the best chance of adherence
by back pain patients. (4) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR understands that our
