Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise when
you were younger. Speed may have been a goal at one
time. Distance may have been the target. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is an excellent aim
for back pain sufferers seeking Plymouth back pain relief. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
optimal walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Plymouth BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is frequently recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
as being effective for low back pain relief.
But what about walking? Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology
encourages Plymouth back pain patients to not add
the word “just” before “walking”! Walking alone is an
incredibly healing activity. Walking is fundamental
to everyday life. Walking is something many of us
take for granted until we can’t
walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we once
did. A new research report supports
this: Walking more than an hour and a half a
week was associated with a lower 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 days a week is ideal. (1) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology suggests
that our Plymouth chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Visiting a licensed chiropractor improves
walking distance. A recent article discovered
that an all-inclusive non-surgical
training which included an exercise program directed
by a chiropractor improved back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and increased
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That’s important! Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology 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 valuable!
