Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise when
you were younger. Speed may have been a goal once. Distance may have been the target. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is a commendable target
for back pain sufferers seeking Fernandina Beach back pain relief. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
prime walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Fernandina Beach BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is normally 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? Amelia Chiropractic Clinic
encourages Fernandina Beach back pain patients to not tag on
the word “just” before “walking”! Walking itself is an amazingly healing activity. Walking is essential
to everyday life. Walking is something so many of us
undervalue until we can’t
walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we once
did. A recent study corroborates
this: Walking more than an hour and a half per
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 bad; regular walking for 30 minutes a day
three times a week is optimal. (1) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic suggests
that our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Seeing a licensed chiropractor improves
walking distance. A new research article discovered
that a comprehensive non-surgical
training which included an exercise program directed
by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and increased
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That
is significant! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Being
able to walk any distance for a half hour is important!
