Largo Walking is Good for You and Your Back!

Just walk. That it all. Walk a little today. Just walk as far as you can. If you can only walk 3 minutes, awesome! Walk 5 minutes the next day. You will be pleasantly surprised at how quickly you will feel better, your back will feel better, your outlook will be better. Walking is a common recommendation at Hollstrom & Associates Inc for our Largo chiropractic patients suffering with low back pain as well as those Largo chiropractic patients who have other issues, too. Walking is an unfussy, economic, valuable activity for Largo chiropractic patients while Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows that walking may be an activity some Largo chiropractic patients may find overwhelming when they are in pain. Hollstrom & Associates Inc appreciates that and will be with you as you start walking.


In a recent analysis of five randomized clinical controlled trials, researchers write that walking may be considered an alternative to other physical activity exercise. Walking makes better pain, disability and fear-avoidance in chronic low back pain patients. (Hollstrom & Associates Inc recognizes that some Largo chiropractic patients fear movement like walking as they are anxious about their back pain might be provoked. Largo low back pain patients will avoid exercise, avoid walking, avoid moving for fear of pain. If this is a familiar feeling for you, please talk with your Largo chiropractor at Hollstrom & Associates Inc.) An added bonus: walking is inexpensive. (1) Hollstrom & Associates Inc will review with you about how walking may benefit your Largo back pain relief treatment plan and how you feel about adding walking to your Largo lifestyle.


An additional report shares that walking was as successful as other non-pharmacological interventions for patient relief and disability reductions for patients with chronic low back pain in short (up to 3 months) and intermediate term (3 to 12 months) follow up. (2) Largo walking is helpful for low back pain patients. Hollstrom & Associates Inc has witnessed the advantage of walking for many Largo back pain patients and their Largo back pain relief and prevention program.
