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 target. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is an excellent target
for back pain sufferers seeking Watertown back pain relief. Watertown Wellness Center
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
prime walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Watertown BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is usually recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
to be effective for low back pain relief.
But walking alone is not talked about as much? Watertown Wellness Center
urges Watertown back pain patients to not add
the word “just” before “walking”! Walking alone is an
incredibly healing activity. Walking is central
to everyday life. Walking is one thing so many of us
underappreciate until we can not
walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we used to. A new research report corroborates
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 who are 50 years old and over.
90 minutes is not bad; regular walking for 30 minutes daily
three times a week is best. (1) Watertown Wellness Center suggests
that our Watertown chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Visiting a licensed chiropractor increases
walking distance. A recent report found
that a comprehensive non-surgical
training which involved 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 patients. (2) That’s significant! Watertown Wellness Center uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 30 minutes
three times a week. Being
able to walk any distance for a half hour is important!
