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 FOR Colorado Springs 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.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
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!
