Vancouver Back Pain Relief Helped by Walking 90 Minutes Weekly

Just walk! It’s simple. It’s cheap. It’s useful. Walking is a great way to get healthy and remain healthy. Walking is a great way to find relief from chronic pain and back pain. Vancouver Disc Centers's Vancouver chiropractic back pain specialist often advises walking as one of the initial things to try to Vancouver back pain patients. Here’s why…


It may seem odd when Vancouver Disc Centers inquires about your sitting habits when you visit Vancouver Disc Centers for Vancouver back pain treatment and relief, but it’s not! It is well known and now even research documented that sitting for extended periods of time is a risk factor for low back pain. Recent research reports more emphatically that longer sitting and low physical activity increases low back pain risk even more. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers’s curiosity about your sitting habits makes sense! Vancouver Disc Centers’s recommendation to walk does, too.


Vancouver walking is beneficial for Vancouver back pain relief as well as the back pain relieving Vancouver chiropractic care at Vancouver Disc Centers! Walking is helpful for chronic musculoskeletal pain sufferers like those with low back pain, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. Walking is a helpful form of exercise for chronic pain relief and is associated with significant improvements in pain and function. (2) Exercise and physical activities like muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise have lots of support for effectively managing low back pain. Weekly walking is expanding more and more approval to be included on this list of effective exercises. For over-50 year olds, weekly walking of 90 minutes a week reduces the risk of low back pain. Longer walking sessions are seemingly preferred. Routine walking for a longer time for more than 3 days a week is significantly affiliated 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) Vancouver Disc Centers knows that our Vancouver chiropractic patients will like that balance!
