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 Manchester back pain relief. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
peak walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Manchester 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? Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries
urges Manchester 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 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 each
week was associated with a lesser risk of self-reported
low back pain in adults over 50 years of age.
90 minutes is not bad; regular walking for 30 minutes a day
three times a week is best. (1) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries suggests
that our Manchester chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Visiting a licensed chiropractor increases
walking distance. A new research report found
that a comprehensive non-operative
training which included an exercise program guided
by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, decreased pain and increased
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That
is significant! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries 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 essential!
