If La Grande walking is an issue, La Grande chiropractic care may well get you walking better.  

La Grande WALKING 
Walking is vital for La Grande living. How often do you think about walking? How many times are you grateful for the ability to put one foot in front of the other? Most La Grande folks don’t give walking a second thought until we or a La Grande loved one can’t do it or can’t|can not]11] do it as easily as we once did. Chronic non-specific low back pain tends to disrupt La Grande back pain patients’ motor control when trying to walk normally. It’s suspected that the erector spinae are working overtime in these patients, resulting in a stiff lumbar-pelvic region and tougher time walking. (1) A new report points out that spinal manipulation in combination with individualized exercise improves the walking ability in back pain patients like those Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC 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 advances the relief of leg and back pain, disability, range of motion and patient satisfaction. (3) The La Grande chiropractic care at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC incorporates one or all these tactics as needed to get you the La Grande back pain relief you desire and protect your walking ability without a doubt.
