Fernandina Beach Back Pain Benefits from Walking and Chiropractic Care

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 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.


Seeing a licensed chiropractor improves walking distance. A new research article discovered that an all-inclusive 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 30 minutes is important!
