Just walk! It’s easy. It’s cheap. It’s effective. Walking is an amazing means to get healthy and remain healthy. Walking is a great way to discover relief from chronic pain and back pain. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic's Augusta chiropractic back pain specialist often suggests walking as one of the first activities to try to Augusta back pain patients. Here is why…
WALK MORE. SIT LESS.
It may seem odd when Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic inquires about your sitting habits when you come in for Augusta back pain treatment and relief, but it is not! It is well known and now even supported by research that sitting for lengthier periods of time is a risk factor for low back pain. The new research goes even further to point out that longer sitting and low physical activity increases low back pain risk even more. (1) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic’s curiosity about your sitting habits makes sense! Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic’s recommendation to walk does, too.
Augusta WALKING BENEFITS
Augusta walking is beneficial for Augusta back pain relief as well as the back pain relieving Augusta chiropractic care at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic! Walking is helpful for chronic musculoskeletal pain sufferers like those with low back pain, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. Walking is an effective way of exercise for chronic pain relief and is associated with significant improvements in pain and function. (2) Exercise and physical activities like muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise have plenty of support for effectively managing low back pain. Weekly walking is gaining more and more favor to be added to this list of effective exercises. For over-50 year olds, weekly walking of 90 minutes a week lowers the risk of low back pain. Lengthier walking sessions are seemingly preferred. Regular walking with lengthier duration for more than 3 days a week is significantly associated with lower low back pain risk. (3) Excitingly, a walking program is research-documented to offer the cheapest costs and the highest level of continuing to do it by back pain patients. (4) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic knows that our Augusta chiropractic patients will like that balance!
