West Palm Beach Encourages Walking for Back Pain Relief

Moses Chiropractic invites West Palm Beach back pain sufferers and neck pain sufferers to walk. Walking is easy and effective in the management of pain. Walks do not have be crazy long! A walk in the park or around the neighborhood works wonders!

BACK PAIN’S DAILY IMPACT

$200 billion dollars annually fund back pain management. Back pain is a leading and widespread reason 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 reported to experience back pain at any point in time, making back pain a primary focus of medical care and of sufferers’ attention and inattention to the day-to-day events 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 requirement. One newer study stated that back and neck pain were positively and significantly associated with workplace absenteeism mostly triggered by difficulty standing, sitting, and walking. (2) Walking is a key daily function! Back pain sufferers headed to surgery will do well to boost their walking capacity before surgery. The greater the walking capacity before surgery. The greater the walking capacity afterwards. Lumbar spinal stenosis as a core issue for back pain reduces walking and quality of life for its sufferers. Lumbar spinal stenosis is the main indication for spinal surgery in older adults, 40% of whom, even after back surgery, still described walking disability. (3) Moses Chiropractic urges walking for everyone!

WALK IN A PARK!

Exercise like walking is a simple, easy way to mitigate West Palm Beach back pain. Walking in a park may be attractive. Well-designed parks are said to improve public health. An interview study of peoples’ opinions of what makes parks inviting reported that trees, gardens, open spaces, and water features were highly valued. Walking/bike trails, basketball hoops, sports/climbing walls were described as physical activity boosters. Seating, tables, and picnic areas were noted as essential for social interaction. (4)
