Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise a few years ago. Speed may have been a goal once. Distance may have been the target. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is an excellent target
for back pain sufferers seeking Oxford back pain relief. Satterwhite Chiropractic
encourages walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
prime walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Oxford BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is usually recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
to be effective for low back pain relief.
But walking alone is not talked about as much? Satterwhite Chiropractic
encourages Oxford back pain patients to not add
the word “just” before “walking”! Walking alone is an amazingly healing activity. Walking is essential
to everyday life. Walking is something many of us
underappreciate until we can not
walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we once
did. A recent study verifies
this: Walking more than an hour and a half each
week was associated with a lesser risk of self-reported
low back pain in adults who are 50 years old and over.
90 minutes is not much; regular walking for 30 minutes daily
three times a week is optimal. (1) Satterwhite Chiropractic suggests
that our Oxford chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Seeing a licensed chiropractor improves
walking distance. A new research article found
that an all-inclusive non-operative
training which involved an exercise program directed
by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and improved
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That
is significant! Satterwhite Chiropractic uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Being
able to walk any distance for a half hour is essential!
