Tarrytown 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 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 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.


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!
