Oxford Back Pain Benefits from Walking and Chiropractic Care

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 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.


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!
