Auburn 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 once. Distance may have been the aim. Today, walking 90 minutes a week is a commendable goal for back pain sufferers seeking Auburn back pain relief. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. encourages 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? Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. encourages Auburn back pain patients to not add the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking alone is an amazingly healing activity. Walking is fundamental to everyday life. Walking is one thing so 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 supports this: Walking more than an hour and a half a week was related to a lesser risk of self-reported low back pain in adults who are 50 years old and over. 90 minutes is not much; regular walking for 30 minutes daily three times a week is ideal. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. suggests that our Auburn chiropractic patients walk.


Visiting a licensed chiropractor increases walking distance. A recent article found that a comprehensive non-surgical training which included an exercise program guided by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and lumbar spine flexibility, decreased pain and improved walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That is important! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Having the ability to walk any distance for 30 minutes is important!
