Fort Wayne Back Pain Benefits from Walking and Chiropractic Care

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 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.


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!
