Vancouver Disc Centers invites Vancouver back pain sufferers
and neck pain sufferers to walk. Walking is simple and effective in the management of pain. Walks do not have be marathons! A walk in the park or around the block effects positive change!
BACK PAIN’S DAILY IMPACT
$200 billion dollars annually fund
back pain management. Back pain is a leading and common
reason of medical care visits to primary care and emergency settings.
Back pain is the most common cause for worker compensation,
lost work hours, and lost productivity. 90% of back pain is
mechanical. 12 to 33% of people are reported to have had
back pain at any point in time, making back pain a main focus
of medical care and of sufferers’ attention and inattention to the daily
events of life. (1) Back pain is costly and daily-life-limiting for many.
SPINAL STENOSIS AND WALKING
Walking is a such a day-to-day requirement. One
newer study stated that back and neck pain were
positively and significantly associated with workplace absenteeism mostly triggered
by difficulty standing, sitting, and walking. (2) Walking is a critical
daily function! Back pain sufferers headed to surgery will do well to boost
their walking capacity before surgery. The better the walking capacity
before surgery. The greater the walking capacity after
surgery. Lumbar spinal stenosis as a core issue for back
pain decreases walking and quality of life for its sufferers.
Lumbar spinal stenosis is the main indication for spinal
surgery in older adults, 40% of whom, even after back surgery, still
described walking disability. (3) Vancouver Disc Centers encourages
walking for everyone!
WALK IN A PARK!
Exercise like walking is a simple, easy
way to ease Vancouver back pain. Walking in a park may be enticing.
Well-designed parks are described to improve
public health. An interview study of peoples’ opinions of what makes parks inviting reported that trees, gardens,
open spaces, and water features were highly cherished.
Walking/bike trails, basketball hoops, sports/climbing walls were described
as physical activity boosters. Seating, tables, and picnic
areas were noted as essential for social
