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 FOR Paramus 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.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
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!
