Vancouver Back Pain Benefits from Walking and Chiropractic Care

Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise a few years ago. Speed may have been a goal once. Distance may have been the aim. Today, walking 90 minutes a week is a commendable target for back pain sufferers seeking Vancouver back pain relief. Vancouver Spine Care Centre suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for prime walking ability and back pain relief.

EXERCISE FOR Vancouver BACK PAIN RELIEF

Exercise is normally recommended to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented to be effective for low back pain relief. But walking alone is not talked about as much? Vancouver Spine Care Centre encourages Vancouver back pain patients to not tag on the word “just” before “walking”! Walking alone is an incredibly healing activity. Walking is central to everyday life. Walking is something so many of us underappreciate until we can’t walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we used to. A recent research report verifies this: Walking more than 90 minutes per week was associated with a lesser risk of self-reported low back pain in adults over 50 years of age. 90 minutes is not much; regular walking for 30 minutes a day three days a week is best. (1) Vancouver Spine Care Centre suggests that our Vancouver chiropractic patients walk.

CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING

Seeing a licensed chiropractor increases walking distance. A recent report found that a comprehensive non-surgical training which involved an exercise program directed by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and lumbar spine flexibility, decreased pain and increased walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That’s significant! Vancouver Spine Care Centre uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 30 minutes three times a week. Having the ability to walk any distance for thirty minutes is important!
