Manahawkin 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 once. Distance may have been the target. Today, walking 90 minutes a week is a worthy aim for back pain sufferers seeking Manahawkin back pain relief. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for peak walking ability and back pain relief.


Exercise is usually recommended to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented to be effective for low back pain relief. But walking alone is not talked about as much? Manahawkin Chiropractic Center encourages Manahawkin back pain patients to not tag on the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking alone is a remarkably healing activity. Walking is essential to everyday life. Walking is something many of us take for granted 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 ninety minutes each 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 ideal. (1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center suggests that our Manahawkin chiropractic patients walk.


Seeing a licensed chiropractor increases walking distance. A recent report found that an all-inclusive non-surgical training which included 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 sufferers. (2) That’s important! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 30 minutes three times a week. Having the ability to walk any distance for a half hour is essential!
