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 commendable target
for back pain sufferers seeking Buffalo, NY back pain relief. The Novelli Wellness Center
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
prime walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Buffalo, NY BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is normally recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
to be effective for relief of low back pain.
But walking alone is not talked about as much? The Novelli Wellness Center
encourages Buffalo, NY back pain patients to not tag on
the word “just” before “walking”! Walking itself is an
incredibly healing activity. Walking is fundamental
to everyday life. Walking is one thing many of us
take for granted until we can not
walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we used to. A recent research report supports
this: Walking more than an hour and a half a
week was related to a lesser risk of self-reported
low back pain in adults who are 50 years old and over.
90 minutes is not bad; regular walking for 30 minutes a day
three days a week is optimal. (1) The Novelli Wellness Center suggests
that our Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Visiting a licensed chiropractor improves
walking distance. A new research article found
that a comprehensive non-surgical
training which included an exercise program guided
by a chiropractor improved back and lower extremity fitness and
lumbar spine flexibility, decreased pain and increased
walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That’s significant! The Novelli Wellness Center 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 30 minutes is valuable!
