Montreal 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 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 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.


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!
