Just walk! It’s simple. It’s economical.
It’s useful. Walking is an amazing way to
get healthy and remain healthy. Walking is a great way to find relief from chronic pain and back pain.
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’s why…
WALK MORE. SIT LESS.
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 BENEFITS
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. (3) Wonderfully,
a walking program is research-documented to offer the lowest
costs and the highest level of adherence
by back pain patients. (4) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center knows that our
Paramus chiropractic patients will appreciate that balance!
