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 FOR Manahawkin 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.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
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!
