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

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

Brooks WALKING 
 
The ability to walk is vital for Brooks lifestyle. How many times a day do you think about walking? How many times are you grateful for the ability to put one foot in front of the other? Most Brooks folks don’t give walking a second thought until we or a Brooks loved one can not 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 disrupt Brooks back pain patients’ motor control when trying to walk normally. It’s suspected that the erector spinae are functioning overtime in these patients, leading to a stiff lumbar-pelvic region and tougher time walking. (1) A recent report points out that spinal manipulation combined with individualized exercise enhances the walking ability in back pain patients like those Soft Health and Healing Clinic sees every day who are dealing 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 Brooks chiropractic care at Soft Health and Healing Clinic incorporates one or all these tactics as appropriate to get you the Brooks 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.

 Soft Health and Healing Clinic encourages exercise for better physical health as well as reduced cervical and lumbar pain. 

Brooks CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Exercise Just a Little Each Week; It Helps!

It does not require much to improve your health, reduce your back pain, and diminish your experience of cervical spine disability. It really doesn’t! A recent report states that just 60 minutes of progressive exercise one time a week makes a difference. Such exercise betters overall physical health and decreases the rate of cervical disability and low back pain in patients with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Let’s – you and Soft Health and Healing Clinic - discuss how you might fill those 60 minutes with effective, do-able exercises just for you, our Brooks chiropractic patient!
