San Jose 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 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 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.


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!
