Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC's La Grande chiropractic back pain specialist often suggests walking as one of the initial
things to try to La Grande back pain patients. Here
WALK MORE. SIT LESS.
It may seem strange when Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC asks about your sitting habits when you come in for La Grande
back pain treatment and relief, but it is not! It’s well
known and now even supported by research that sitting
for lengthier periods of time is a risk factor for low back
pain. The new research reports
more emphatically that extensive sitting and low physical activity
increases low back pain risk even more. (1) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC’s
curiosity about your sitting habits makes sense! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC’s
recommendation to walk does, too.
La Grande WALKING BENEFITS
La Grande walking is beneficial
for La Grande back pain relief as well as the back pain
relieving La Grande chiropractic care at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC! Walking is beneficial
for chronic musculoskeletal pain sufferers as those with low back
pain, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. Walking is a helpful style
of exercise for chronic pain relief and is related to
significant improvements in pain and function. (2) Exercise and physical
activities like muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise have lots
of backing for effectively dealing with low back pain.
Weekly walking is growing more and more favor
to be included on this list of effective activities.
For over-50 year olds, weekly walking of 90 minutes a week reduces
the risk of low back pain. Lengthier walking sessions are ostensibly
preferred. Regular walking for a longer time for more than 3 days a week is significantly associated
with lower low back pain risk. (3) Wonderfully,
a walking program is research-documented to have the lowest
costs and the best chance of continuing to do it
by back pain patients. (4) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC knows that our
La Grande chiropractic patients will like that balance!
