Watertown Back Pain Relief Helped by Walking 90 Minutes Weekly

Just walk! It’s simple. It’s cheap. It’s effective. Walking is an amazing means to get healthy and remain healthy. Walking is a fantastic way to find relief from chronic pain and back pain. Watertown Wellness Center's Watertown chiropractic back pain specialist often advises walking as one of the initial things to try to Watertown back pain patients. Here’s why…


It may seem odd when Watertown Wellness Center inquires about your sitting habits when you come in for Watertown back pain treatment and relief, but it is not! It’s well known and now even research documented that sitting for lengthier periods of time is a risk factor for low back pain. Recent research reports more emphatically that longer sitting and low physical activity raises low back pain risk even more. (1) Watertown Wellness Center’s curiosity about your sitting habits is logical! Watertown Wellness Center’s recommendation to walk is, too.


Watertown walking is beneficial for Watertown back pain relief along with the back pain relieving Watertown chiropractic care at Watertown Wellness Center! Walking is helpful for chronic musculoskeletal pain sufferers like those with low back pain, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. Walking is a helpful style of exercise for chronic pain relief and is associated with significant improvements in pain and function. (2) Exercise and physical activities like muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise have lots of support for effectively dealing with low back pain. Weekly walking is gaining more and more favor to be included on this list of effective activities. For over-50 year olds, weekly walking of 90 minutes a week decreases the risk of low back pain. Lengthier walking sessions are seemingly better. Regular walking for a longer time for more than 3 days a week is significantly associated with lower low back pain risk. (3) Wonderfully, a walking program is research-documented to offer the lowest costs and the best chance of continuing to do it by back pain patients. (4) Watertown Wellness Center understands that our Watertown chiropractic patients will like that balance!
