Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise when you were younger. Speed may have been a goal at one time. Distance may have been the target. Today, walking 90 minutes a week is a worthy aim for back pain sufferers seeking Augusta back pain relief. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for prime walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Augusta BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is normally recommended to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented as being effective for relief of low back pain. But what about walking? Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic encourages Augusta back pain patients to not add the word “just” before “walking”! Walking alone is a remarkably healing activity. Walking is central to everyday life. Walking is something so many of us undervalue until we can not walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we used to. A recent research report verifies this: Walking more than 90 minutes per week was associated with a lower risk of self-reported low back pain in adults over 50 years of age. 90 minutes is not much; regular walking for 30 minutes a day three days a week is best. (1) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic suggests that our Augusta chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Seeing a licensed chiropractor increases walking distance. A new research report discovered that an all-inclusive non-surgical training which included an exercise program guided by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and improved walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That’s significant! Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic 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 thirty minutes is valuable!
