Vancouver Back Pain Relief Helped by Walking 90 Minutes Weekly

Just walk! It’s simple. It’s economical. It’s useful. Walking is an amazing means to get healthy and remain healthy. Walking is a fantastic way to find relief from chronic pain and back pain. Vancouver Spine Care Centre's Vancouver chiropractic back pain specialist often advises walking as one of the initial activities to try to Vancouver back pain patients. Here’s why…


It may seem strange when Vancouver Spine Care Centre inquires about your sitting habits when you come in for Vancouver back pain treatment and relief, but it’s not! It is well known and now even research documented that sitting for longer periods of time is a risk factor for low back pain. The new research reports more emphatically that longer sitting and low physical activity raises low back pain risk even more. (1) Vancouver Spine Care Centre’s curiosity about your sitting habits makes sense! Vancouver Spine Care Centre’s recommendation to walk does, too.


Vancouver walking is beneficial for Vancouver back pain relief as well as the back pain relieving Vancouver chiropractic care at Vancouver Spine Care Centre! Walking is beneficial for chronic musculoskeletal pain sufferers as those with low back pain, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. Walking is an effective kind of exercise for chronic pain relief and is associated with significant improvements in pain and function. (2) Exercise and physical activities like muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise have lots of support for effectively managing low back pain. Weekly walking is gaining more and more favor to be added to this list of effective activities. For over-50 year olds, weekly walking of 90 minutes a week reduces the risk of low back pain. Lengthier walking sessions are seemingly better. Regular walking for a longer time for more than 3 days a week is significantly affiliated with lower low back pain risk. (3) Wonderfully, a walking program is research-documented to offer the lowest costs and the best chance of adherence by back pain patients. (4) Vancouver Spine Care Centre understands that our Vancouver chiropractic patients will appreciate that balance!
