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 target
for back pain sufferers seeking Largo back pain relief. Hollstrom & Associates Inc
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
peak walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Largo BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is frequently recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
as being effective for relief of low back pain.
But walking alone is not talked about as much? Hollstrom & Associates Inc
encourages Largo back pain patients to not tag on
the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking alone is an amazingly healing activity. Walking is essential
to everyday life. Walking is something so many of us
underappreciate until we can not
walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we used to. A recent research report corroborates
this: Walking more than an hour and a half each
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 times a week is optimal. (1) Hollstrom & Associates Inc suggests
that our Largo chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Seeing a licensed chiropractor increases
walking distance. A new research article found
that an all-inclusive non-surgical
training which involved an exercise program directed
by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and improved
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That
is significant! Hollstrom & Associates Inc uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Having the ability to walk any distance for thirty minutes is essential!
