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,
lost work hours, and lost productivity. 90% of back pain is
mechanical. 12 to 33% of people are stated to have had
back pain at any point in time, making back pain a main focus
of medical care and of sufferers’ attention and inattention to the daily
events of life. (1) Back pain is costly and quality
of life altering for many.
SPINAL STENOSIS AND WALKING
Walking is a such a day-to-day requirement. One
newer study described that back and neck pain were
positively and significantly associated with workplace absenteeism mostly caused
by difficulty standing, sitting, and walking. (2) Walking is a vital
daily function! Back pain sufferers headed to surgery will do well to improve
their walking capacity before surgery. The better the walking capacity
pre-surgery. The greater the walking capacity after
surgery. Lumbar spinal stenosis as a core issue for back
pain decreases walking and quality of life for its sufferers.
Lumbar spinal stenosis is the main sign for spinal
surgery in older adults, 40% of whom, even after back surgery, still
reported walking disability. (3) Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries urges
walking for everyone!

Exercise like walking is a simple, easy
way to mitigate Manchester back pain. Walking in a park may be attractive.
Well-designed parks are described to improve
public health. An interview study of peoples’ opinions about what creates
an inviting park described that trees, gardens,
open spaces, and water features were highly cherished.
Walking/bike trails, basketball hoops, sports/climbing walls were reported as physical activity encouraging. Seating, tables, and picnic
areas were reported necessary for social
