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 aim. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is a commendable aim
for back pain sufferers seeking Pflugerville back pain relief. Pflugerville Wellness Center
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
peak walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Pflugerville BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is usually 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? Pflugerville Wellness Center
urges Pflugerville back pain patients to not tag on
the word “just” before “walking”! Walking alone is an amazingly healing activity. Walking is basic
to everyday life. Walking is something many of us
undervalue until we can not
walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we used to. A new research report verifies
this: Walking more than an hour and a half each
week was related to 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 a day
three times a week is best. (1) Pflugerville Wellness Center suggests
that our Pflugerville chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Visiting a licensed chiropractor improves
walking distance. A recent report discovered
that a comprehensive non-surgical
training which included an exercise program directed
by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, decreased pain and increased
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That
is significant! Pflugerville Wellness Center uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Having the ability to walk any distance for thirty minutes is valuable!
