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 goal
for back pain sufferers seeking San Jose back pain relief. Chiropractic Solutions
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
optimal walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR San Jose BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is frequently recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
as being effective for low back pain relief.
But walking alone is not talked about as much? Chiropractic Solutions
encourages San Jose back pain patients to not tag on
the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking alone is an amazingly healing activity. Walking is essential
to everyday life. Walking is one thing many of us
underappreciate until we can not
walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we once
did. A new study supports
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 much; regular walking for 30 minutes daily
three days a week is optimal. (1) Chiropractic Solutions suggests
that our San Jose chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Visiting a licensed chiropractor improves
walking distance. A new research 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, eased pain and improved
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That’s important! Chiropractic Solutions 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 a half hour is essential!
