Fort Wayne Back Pain Benefits from Walking and Chiropractic Care

June 04, 2019

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 target. Today, walking 90 minutes a week is a commendable target 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 tag on the word “just” before “walking”! Walking itself is an incredibly healing activity. Walking is basic to everyday life. Walking is one thing many of us underappreciate until we can’t walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we used to. A new research report verifies this: Walking more than an hour and a half a week was related to a lesser risk of self-reported low back pain in adults over 50 years of age. 90 minutes is not bad; regular walking for 30 minutes a day three days a week is optimal. (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc suggests that our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients walk.


Visiting a licensed chiropractor improves walking distance. A recent report discovered that an all-inclusive non-operative training which included an exercise program guided by a chiropractor improved back and lower extremity fitness and lumbar spine flexibility, decreased pain and increased walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That is significant! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Having the ability to walk any distance for 30 minutes is important!
