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 FOR Auburn 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.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
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 a half hour is important!
