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 aim. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is a worthy aim
for back pain sufferers seeking Ashburn back pain relief. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
peak walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Ashburn BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is frequently 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? Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn
urges Ashburn back pain patients to not tag on
the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking itself is a remarkably healing activity. Walking is central
to everyday life. Walking is something 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 supports
this: Walking more than an hour and a half each
week was related to a lower risk of self-reported
low back pain in adults over 50 years of age.
90 minutes is not bad; regular walking for 30 minutes daily
three times a week is ideal. (1) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn suggests
that our Ashburn chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Visiting a licensed chiropractor increases
walking distance. A recent article discovered
that an all-inclusive non-surgical
training which involved an exercise program guided
by a chiropractor improved back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, decreased pain and improved
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That’s important! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 30 minutes
three times a week. Having the ability to walk any distance for 30 minutes is essential!
