Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center's Paramus chiropractic back pain specialist often suggests walking as one of the first things to try to Paramus back pain patients. Here is why…


It may seem strange when Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center inquires about your sitting habits when you come in for Paramus back pain treatment and relief, but it is not! It is well known and now even research documented that sitting for extended periods of time is a risk factor for low back pain. Recent research goes even further to point out that extensive sitting and low physical activity increases low back pain risk even more. (1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center’s curiosity about your sitting habits makes sense! Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center’s recommendation to walk does, too.


Paramus walking is advantageous for Paramus back pain relief along with the back pain relieving Paramus chiropractic care at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center! Walking is helpful for chronic musculoskeletal pain sufferers as those with low back pain, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. Walking is an effective form of exercise for chronic pain relief and is associated with significant improvements in pain and function. (2) Exercise and physical activities like muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise have plenty of support for effectively managing low back pain. Weekly walking is expanding more and more approval to be added to this list of effective activities. For over-50 year olds, weekly walking of 90 minutes a week lowers the risk of low back pain. Elongated walking sessions are seemingly better. Routine walking with longer duration for more than 3 days a week is significantly associated with decreased low back pain risk.
