Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise a few years ago. Speed may have been a goal at one
time. Distance may have been the aim. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is a commendable target
for back pain sufferers seeking Ottawa back pain relief. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
prime walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Ottawa 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? The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider
encourages Ottawa back pain patients to not add
the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking itself is a remarkably healing activity. Walking is basic
to everyday life. Walking is one thing many of us
underappreciate until we can’t
walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we once
did. A new study corroborates
this: Walking more than ninety minutes 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 bad; regular walking for 30 minutes daily
three days a week is optimal. (1) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider suggests
that our Ottawa chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Seeing a licensed chiropractor improves
walking distance. A recent report found
that a comprehensive non-surgical
training which involved an exercise program directed
by a chiropractor improved back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and increased
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That
is significant! The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Being
able to walk any distance for a half hour is important!
