Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise when
you were younger. Speed may have been a goal once. Distance may have been the aim. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is an excellent goal
for back pain sufferers seeking Tarrytown back pain relief. Tarrytown Chiropractic
encourages walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
peak walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Tarrytown BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is normally recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
as being effective for relief of low back pain.
But what about walking? Tarrytown Chiropractic
urges Tarrytown back pain patients to not tag on
the word “just” before “walking”! Walking alone is a remarkably healing activity. Walking is basic
to everyday life. Walking is one thing many of us
take for granted until we can’t
walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we used to. A new study verifies
this: Walking more than an hour and a half per
week was related to a lower 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 times a week is best. (1) Tarrytown Chiropractic suggests
that our Tarrytown chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Seeing a licensed chiropractor improves
walking distance. A new research report discovered
that an all-inclusive non-operative
training which involved an exercise program directed
by a chiropractor improved back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and improved
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That
is significant! Tarrytown Chiropractic uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 30 minutes
three times a week. Having the ability to walk any distance for a half hour is important!
