Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise a few years ago. Speed may have been a goal at one
time. Distance may have been the aim. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is an excellent goal
for back pain sufferers seeking Malverne back pain relief. Malverne Health & Wellness
encourages walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
peak walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Malverne BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is frequently 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? Malverne Health & Wellness
encourages Malverne back pain patients to not tag on
the word “just” before “walking”! Walking itself is an
incredibly healing activity. Walking is fundamental
to everyday life. Walking is one thing so many of us
undervalue until we can’t
walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we used to. A new research report supports
this: Walking more than 90 minutes per
week was related to a lower 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 ideal. (1) Malverne Health & Wellness suggests
that our Malverne chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Seeing a licensed chiropractor improves
walking distance. A recent report discovered
that a comprehensive non-operative
training which involved 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 patients. (2) That’s significant! Malverne Health & Wellness uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 30 minutes
three times a week. Being
able to walk any distance for 30 minutes is important!
