Colorado Springs Back Pain Benefits from Walking and Chiropractic Care

Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise a few years ago. Speed may have been a goal at one time. Distance may have been the target. Today, walking 90 minutes a week is a worthy target for back pain sufferers seeking Colorado Springs back pain relief. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR encourages walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for optimal walking ability and back pain relief.


Exercise is frequently recommended to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented as being effective for low back pain relief. But walking alone is not talked about as much? The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR encourages Colorado Springs back pain patients to not tag on the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking alone is a remarkably healing activity. Walking is fundamental to everyday life. Walking is something so many of us take for granted until we can not walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we once did. A recent study supports this: Walking more than an hour and a half per week was related to a lesser risk of self-reported low back pain in adults who are 50 years old and over. 90 minutes is not bad; regular walking for 30 minutes a day three times a week is ideal. (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR suggests that our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients walk.


Seeing a licensed chiropractor improves walking distance. A recent report found 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, decreased pain and improved walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That is significant! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 30 minutes three times a week. Being able to walk any distance for thirty minutes is essential!
