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…
WALK MORE. SIT LESS.
It may seem odd when Vancouver Disc Centers inquires about your sitting habits when you come in 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 BENEFITS
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!
