Manahawkin Chiropractic Center invites Manahawkin back pain sufferers
and neck pain sufferers to walk. Walking is easy and valuable in managing pain. Walks don’t have be marathons! A walk in the park or around the block does wonders!
BACK PAIN’S DAILY IMPACT
$200 billion dollars annually go to
back pain management. Back pain is a leading and widespread
reason of medical care visits to primary care and emergency settings.
Back pain is the most common reason for worker compensation,
lost work hours, and lost productivity. 90% of back pain is
mechanical. 12 to 33% of people are stated to have had
back pain at any point in time, making back pain a main emphasis
of medical care and of sufferers’ attention and inattention to the daily
workings of life. (1) Back pain is expensive and daily-life-limiting for many.
SPINAL STENOSIS AND WALKING
Walking is a such a day-to-day requirement. One
recent study stated that back and neck pain were
positively and significantly associated with workplace absenteeism mostly caused
by difficulty standing, sitting, and walking. (2) Walking is a critical
daily function! Back pain sufferers headed to surgery will do well to improve
their walking capacity before surgery. The better the walking capacity
pre-surgery. The better the walking capacity after
surgery. Lumbar spinal stenosis as a core issue for back
pain decreases walking and quality of life for its sufferers.
Lumbar spinal stenosis is the main indication for spinal
surgery in older adults, 40% of whom, even post-back surgery, still
reported walking disability. (3) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center urges
walking for everyone!
WALK IN A PARK!
Exercise like walking is a simple, easy
way to ease Manahawkin back pain. Walking in a park may be attractive.
Well-designed parks are described to enhance
public health. An interview study of peoples’ opinions about what makes parks inviting described that trees, gardens,
open spaces, and water features were highly cherished.
Walking/bike trails, basketball hoops, sports/climbing walls were described
as physical activity boosters. Seating, tables, and picnic
areas were noted as essential for social
