Largo Back Pain Benefits from Walking and Chiropractic Care

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 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.


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!
