Vancouver Walking is Good for You and Your Back!

Just walk. That’s it. Walk a bit today. Just walk as far as you can. If walking just 3 minutes is all for you, terrific! Walk 5 minutes the next day. You’ll be astonished at how rapidly you’ll feel better, your back will feel better, your outlook will be improved. Walking is a ordinary recommendation at Vancouver Disc Centers for our Vancouver chiropractic patients experiencing low back pain as well as those Vancouver chiropractic patients who have other issues, too. Walking is a simple, cheap, effective activity for Vancouver chiropractic patients while Vancouver Disc Centers recognizes that walking may be an activity some Vancouver chiropractic patients may find disconcerting when they are hurting. Vancouver Disc Centers appreciates that and will be with you as you begin walking.


In a new analysis of five randomized clinical controlled trials, researchers write that walking may be thought of as an alternative to other physical activity exercise. Walking improves pain, disability and fear-avoidance in chronic low back pain patients. (Vancouver Disc Centers recognizes that some Vancouver chiropractic patients fear movement like walking as they are anxious about their back pain may be provoked. Vancouver low back pain patients will avoid exercise, avoid walking, avoid moving for fear of pain. If this sounds like you, please have a conversation with your Vancouver chiropractor at Vancouver Disc Centers.) Plus walking is inexpensive. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers will review with you about how walking may help your Vancouver back pain relief treatment plan and how you feel about adding walking to your Vancouver lifestyle.


An additional research paper reveals that walking was as successful as other non-pharmacological interventions for patient relief and disability decreases for patients with chronic low back pain in short (up to 3 months) and intermediate term (3 to 12 months) follow up. (2) Vancouver walking is beneficial for low back pain patients. Vancouver Disc Centers has seen the benefit of walking for many Vancouver back pain patients and their Vancouver back pain relief and prevention program.
