Paramus 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 target for back pain sufferers seeking Paramus back pain relief. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center suggests 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 what about walking? Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center urges Paramus back pain patients to not tag on the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking alone is an amazingly healing activity. Walking is central to everyday life. Walking is something so many of us take for granted until we can not walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we once did. A recent study corroborates this: Walking more than ninety minutes each week was related to a lesser risk of self-reported low back pain in adults over 50 years of age. 90 minutes is not much; regular walking for 30 minutes a day three days a week is optimal. (1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center suggests that our Paramus chiropractic patients walk.


Visiting a licensed chiropractor improves walking distance. A recent report discovered that a comprehensive non-surgical training which involved 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! Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 30 minutes three times a week. Having the ability to walk any distance for 30 minutes is important!
