Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise a few years ago. Speed may have been a goal once. Distance may have been the aim. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is an excellent aim
for back pain sufferers seeking Fort Wayne back pain relief. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
optimal walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Fort Wayne BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is commonly recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
to be effective for relief of low back pain.
But walking alone is not talked about as much? Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc
encourages Fort Wayne back pain patients to not add
the word “just” before “walking”! Walking alone is an amazingly healing activity. Walking is essential
to everyday life. Walking is one thing so 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 per
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 bad; regular walking for 30 minutes daily
three days a week is optimal. (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc suggests
that our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Visiting a licensed chiropractor increases
walking distance. A recent article discovered
that an all-inclusive non-operative
training which included an exercise program directed
by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, decreased pain and increased
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That
is important! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 30 minutes
three times a week. Having the ability to walk any distance for 30 minutes is essential!
