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 FOR West Palm Beach 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 an hour and a half 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.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Visiting a licensed chiropractor improves
walking distance. A recent article found
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, decreased pain and improved
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That
is significant! Moses Chiropractic uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 30 minutes
three times a week. Having the ability to walk any distance for thirty minutes is valuable!
