January 2019 Fort Wayne Chiropractic Healthy News: Walking, Spinal Manipulation, & Exercise Fort Wayne WALKING The ability to walk is important for Fort Wayne lifestyle. How many times a day do you think about walking? How often are you thankful for being able to walk? Most Fort Wayne folks do not give walking a second thought until we or a Fort Wayne loved one can not do it or is not able do it as effortlessly as we did at one time. Chronic non-specific low back pain is apt to disrupt Fort Wayne back pain patients’ motor control when trying to walk normally. It’s thought that the erector spinae are operating overtime in these patients, leading to a stiff lumbar-pelvic region and tougher time walking. (1) A recent report shows that spinal manipulation in combination with individualized exercise enhances the walking ability in back pain patients like those Cox Chiropractic Medicine INC sees every day who are suffering with lumbar spinal stenosis better than medical care (medications/epidural steroid injections) and/or group exercise in the short term.
