Groton 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 a commendable aim for back pain sufferers seeking Groton back pain relief. Hutter Chiropractic Office encourages walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for optimal walking ability and back pain relief.


Exercise is normally recommended to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented to be effective for relief of low back pain. But walking alone is not talked about as much? Hutter Chiropractic Office encourages Groton back pain patients to not add the word “just” before “walking”! Walking itself is a remarkably healing activity. Walking is central to everyday life. Walking is something many of us underappreciate until we can’t walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we once did. A new study supports this: Walking more than 90 minutes per week was related to a lesser risk of self-reported low back pain in adults who are 50 years old and over. 90 minutes is not much; regular walking for 30 minutes a day three times a week is best. (1) Hutter Chiropractic Office suggests that our Groton chiropractic patients walk.


Visiting a licensed chiropractor improves walking distance. A new research article discovered that an all-inclusive non-surgical training which included an exercise program guided by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and lumbar spine flexibility, decreased pain and improved walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That is important! Hutter Chiropractic Office uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Having the ability to walk any distance for 30 minutes is important!
