Pflugerville Back Pain Benefits from Walking and Chiropractic Care

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 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.


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!
