Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise when
you were younger. Speed may have been a goal once. Distance may have been the aim. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is an excellent target
for back pain sufferers seeking Fort Wayne back pain relief. Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
encourages walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
prime walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Fort Wayne BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is frequently recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
as being effective for low back pain relief.
But what about walking? Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
urges Fort Wayne back pain patients to not add
the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking alone is an
incredibly healing activity. Walking is fundamental
to everyday life. Walking is something many of us
underappreciate until we can not
walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we used to. A new study verifies
this: Walking more than an hour and a half a
week was associated with a lower risk of self-reported
low back pain in adults over 50 years of age.
90 minutes is not bad; regular walking for 30 minutes daily
three times a week is ideal. (1) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic suggests
that our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Seeing a licensed chiropractor improves
walking distance. A recent report found
that a comprehensive non-surgical
training which involved an exercise program guided
by a chiropractor improved back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, decreased pain and improved
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That
is important! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 30 minutes
three times a week. Being
able to walk any distance for thirty minutes is essential!
