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. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office
encourages walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
optimal walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Groton 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 what about walking? Shoreline Medical Services/ 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 an hour and a half 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) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office suggests
that our Groton chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
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! Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Having the ability to walk any distance for a half hour is important!
