January 2019 Ottawa Chiropractic Healthy News: Walking, Spinal Manipulation, & Exercise

If Ottawa walking is a problem, Ottawa chiropractic care may well get you walking better.  

The ability to walk is valuable for Ottawa living. How many times a day do you think about walking? How often are you thankful for the ability to put one foot in front of the other? Most Ottawa folks do not give walking a second thought until we or a Ottawa loved one can not do it or is not able do it as effortlessly as we did at one time. Chronic non-specific low back pain is apt to affect Ottawa back pain patients’ motor control when trying to walk normally. It’s suspected that the erector spinae are functioning intensely in these patients, leading to a stiff lumbar-pelvic region and tougher time walking. (1) A recent report shows that spinal manipulation combined with individualized exercise improves the walking ability in back pain patients like those The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider sees every day who are suffering with lumbar spinal stenosis better than medical care (medications/epidural steroid injections) and/or group exercise in the short term. (2) Further, spinal manipulation for patients with lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) also benefits the relief of leg and back pain, disability, range of motion and patient satisfaction. (3) The Ottawa chiropractic care at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider incorporates one or all these tactics as appropriate to get you the Ottawa back pain relief you desire and protect your walking ability without a doubt.
