BACK PAIN’S DAILY IMPACT
$200 billion dollars a year go to
back pain management. Back pain is a top and widespread
reason of medical care visits to primary care and emergency settings.
Back pain is a top reason for worker compensation,
lost work hours, and lost productivity. 90% of back pain is
mechanical. 12 to 33% of people are reported to have had
back pain at any point in time, making back pain a primary emphasis
of medical care and of sufferers’ attention and inattention to the daily
events of life. (1) Back pain is expensive and quality
of life altering for many.
SPINAL STENOSIS AND WALKING
Walking is a such a day-to-day necessity. One
recent study described that back and neck pain were
positively and significantly associated with workplace absenteeism mostly caused
by difficulty standing, sitting, and walking. (2) Walking is a critical
daily function! Back pain sufferers headed to surgery will do well to improve
their walking capacity before surgery. The greater the walking capacity
before surgery. The greater the walking capacity afterwards. Lumbar spinal stenosis as an underlying issue for back
pain decreases walking and quality of life for its sufferers.
Lumbar spinal stenosis is the main sign for spinal
surgery in older adults, 40% of whom, even after back surgery, still
reported walking disability. (3) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic encourages
walking for everyone!
WALK IN A PARK!
Exercise like walking is a simple, straight-forward
way to mitigate Fernandina Beach back pain. Walking in a park may be enticing.
Well-designed parks are said to enhance
public health. An interview study of peoples’ opinions about what makes parks inviting reported that trees, gardens,
open spaces, and water features were highly appreciated.
Walking/bike trails, basketball hoops, sports/climbing walls were stated as physical activity encouraging. Seating, tables, and picnic
areas were reported necessary for social
