January 2019 Vancouver Chiropractic Healthy News: Walking, Spinal Manipulation, & Exercise

If Vancouver walking is a problem, Vancouver chiropractic care may well get you walking better.  

Vancouver WALKING 
The ability to walk is valuable for Vancouver lifestyle. How many times a day do you think about walking? How often are you grateful for being able to walk? Most Vancouver folks do not give walking a second thought until we or a Vancouver loved one can’t do it or is not able do it as effortlessly as we did at one time. Chronic non-specific low back pain is apt to affect Vancouver back pain patients’ motor control while walking. It is thought that the erector spinae are functioning overtime in these patients, leading to a stiff lumbar-pelvic region and more difficult time walking. (1) A recent report describes that spinal manipulation in combination with individualized exercise enhances the walking ability in back pain patients like those Vancouver Disc Centers 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 promotes the relief of leg and back pain, disability, range of motion and patient satisfaction. (3) The Vancouver chiropractic care at Vancouver Disc Centers incorporates one or all these approaches as appropriate to get you the Vancouver back pain relief you want and protect your walking ability without your giving it a second thought.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Dan Shuman on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about leg pain relief with his chiropractic care incorporating the Cox® Technic System and exercise.

 Vancouver Disc Centers encourages exercise for improved physical health as well as reduced cervical and lumbar pain. 

Exercise Just a Little Each Week; It Helps!

It does not take much to better your health, reduce your back pain, and lessen your encounter with cervical spine disability. It really doesn’t! A just published report says that just 60 minutes of progressive exercise one time a week makes a difference. Such exercise improves overall physical health and decreases the rate of cervical disability and low back pain in patients with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Let us – you and Vancouver Disc Centers - discuss how you might fill those 60 minutes with effective, do-able exercises just for you, our Vancouver chiropractic patient!
