Orchard Park, NY 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 commendable target for back pain sufferers seeking Orchard Park, NY back pain relief. Novelli Wellness Center suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for prime walking ability and 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? Novelli Wellness Center encourages Orchard Park, 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) Novelli Wellness Center suggests that our Orchard Park, NY chiropractic patients walk.


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! 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!
