Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn invites Ashburn back pain sufferers
and neck pain sufferers to walk. Walking is simple and valuable in managing pain. Walks do not have be crazy
long! A walk in the park or around the block does wonders!
BACK PAIN’S DAILY IMPACT
$200 billion dollars annually fund
back pain management. Back pain is a top and widespread
reason of medical care visits to primary care and emergency settings.
Back pain is the most common cause for worker compensation,
missed work hours, and lost productivity. 90% of back pain is
mechanical. 12 to 33% of people are reported to have had
back pain at any point in time, making back pain a main emphasis
of medical care and of sufferers’ attention and inattention to the day-to-day
workings of life. (1) Back pain is expensive and quality
of life altering for many.
SPINAL STENOSIS AND WALKING
Walking is a such a day-to-day necessity. One
newer study described that back and neck pain were
positively and significantly associated with workplace absenteeism mostly triggered
by difficulty standing, sitting, and walking. (2) Walking is a vital
daily function! Back pain sufferers headed to surgery will do well to boost
their walking capacity before surgery. The greater the walking capacity
pre-surgery. The better the walking capacity afterwards. Lumbar spinal stenosis as a core issue for back
pain reduces walking and quality of life for its sufferers.
Lumbar spinal stenosis is the main sign for spinal
surgery in older adults, 40% of whom, even after back surgery, still
described walking disability. (3) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn urges
walking for everyone!
WALK IN A PARK!
Exercise like walking is a simple, easy
way to ease Ashburn back pain. Walking in a park may be attractive.
Well-designed parks are said to enhance
public health. An interview study of peoples’ opinions of what makes parks inviting reported that trees, gardens,
open spaces, and water features were highly appreciated.
Walking/bike trails, basketball hoops, sports/climbing walls were described
as physical activity boosters. Seating, tables, and picnic
areas were reported essential for social
