Malverne Back Pain Benefits from Walking and Chiropractic Care

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 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 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.


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 thirty minutes is important!
