West Palm Beach 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 an excellent goal for back pain sufferers seeking West Palm Beach back pain relief. Moses Chiropractic encourages walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for optimal walking ability and back pain relief.


Exercise is commonly recommended to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented as being effective for relief of low back pain. But what about walking? Moses Chiropractic urges West Palm Beach back pain patients to not tag on the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking alone is an incredibly healing activity. Walking is central to everyday life. Walking is one thing so many of us underappreciate until we can’t walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we once did. A new study supports this: Walking more than 90 minutes each week was associated with a lower risk of self-reported low back pain in adults over 50 years of age. 90 minutes is not much; regular walking for 30 minutes daily three days a week is optimal. (1) Moses Chiropractic suggests that our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients walk.


Visiting a licensed chiropractor improves walking distance. A recent article discovered that an all-inclusive non-surgical training which involved an exercise program guided by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and improved walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That is significant! Moses Chiropractic uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 30 minutes three times a week. Having the ability to walk any distance for a half hour is valuable!
