Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise when
you were younger. Speed may have been a goal once. Distance may have been the target. Today, walking 90
minutes a week is a worthy goal
for back pain sufferers seeking La Grande back pain relief. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC
suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for
peak walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR La Grande BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is usually recommended
to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented
as being effective for low back pain relief.
But what about walking? Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC
urges La Grande back pain patients to not tag on
the word “just” before “walking”! Walking itself is a remarkably healing activity. Walking is basic
to everyday life. Walking is one thing many of us
take for granted until we can not
walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we used to. A new study verifies
this: Walking more than an hour and a half a
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 times a week is ideal. (1) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC suggests
that our La Grande chiropractic patients walk.
CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Seeing a licensed chiropractor increases
walking distance. A new research article found
that an all-inclusive non-surgical
training which involved an exercise program guided
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’s important! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC uses gentle Cox®
Technic spinal manipulation and encourages walking 30 minutes
three times a week. Being
able to walk any distance for a half hour is essential!
