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 target. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is a worthy goal
for back pain sufferers seeking Montreal back pain relief. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
prime walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Montreal BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is normally recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
as being effective for low back pain relief.
But walking alone is not talked about as much? Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic
encourages Montreal back pain patients to not tag on
the word “just” before “walking”! Walking itself is a remarkably healing activity. Walking is essential
to everyday life. Walking is something so many of us
take for granted until we can not
walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we once
did. A recent study corroborates
this: Walking more than an hour and a half per
week was associated with a lower 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 days a week is optimal. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic suggests
that our Montreal chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Visiting a licensed chiropractor increases
walking distance. A new research article discovered
that a comprehensive non-surgical
training which included an exercise program directed
by a chiropractor improved back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, decreased pain and increased
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That
is significant! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Being
able to walk any distance for a half hour is important!
