Fort Wayne Back Pain Benefits from Walking and Chiropractic Care

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 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.


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!
