and neck pain sufferers to walk. Walking is simple and effective in the management of pain. Walks don’t have be crazy
long! A walk in the park or around the neighborhood works
BACK PAIN’S DAILY IMPACT
$200 billion dollars annually go to
back pain management. Back pain is a leading and common
reason of medical care visits to primary care and emergency settings.
Back pain is a top cause for worker compensation,
lost work hours, and lost productivity. 90% of back pain is
mechanical. 12 to 33% of people are stated to experience
back pain at any point in time, making back pain a primary emphasis
of medical care and of sufferers’ attention and inattention to the day-to-day
workings of life. (1) Back pain is expensive and daily-life-limiting for many.
SPINAL STENOSIS AND WALKING
Walking is a such a day-to-day necessity. One
newer study described that back and neck pain were
positively and significantly associated with workplace absenteeism mostly triggered
by difficulty standing, sitting, and walking. (2) Walking is a key
daily function! Back pain sufferers headed to surgery will do well to boost
their walking capacity before surgery. The greater the walking capacity
pre-surgery. The greater the walking capacity after
surgery. Lumbar spinal stenosis as a core issue for back
pain decreases walking and quality of life for its sufferers.
Lumbar spinal stenosis is the main signal for spinal
surgery in older adults, 40% of whom, even post-back surgery, still
reported walking disability. (3) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. urges
walking for everyone!
WALK IN A PARK!
Exercise like walking is a simple, straight-forward
way to mitigate Auburn back pain. Walking in a park may be attractive.
Well-designed parks are said to improve
public health. An interview study of peoples’ opinions about what makes parks inviting reported that trees, gardens,
open spaces, and water features were highly valued.
Walking/bike trails, basketball hoops, sports/climbing walls were described
as physical activity boosters. Seating, tables, and picnic
areas were reported necessary for social
