Just walk! It’s simple. It’s economical.
It’s useful. Walking is an amazing way to
get healthy and stay healthy. Walking is a great way to discover relief from chronic pain and back pain.
Soft Health and Healing Clinic's Brooks chiropractic back pain specialist often suggests walking as one of the initial
activities to try to Brooks back pain patients. Here’s why…
WALK MORE. SIT LESS.
It may seem strange when Soft Health and Healing Clinic asks about your sitting habits when you come in for Brooks
back pain treatment and relief, but it is not! It’s well
known and now even supported by research 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
raises low back pain risk even more. (1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic’s
curiosity about your sitting habits is logical! Soft Health and Healing Clinic’s recommendation
to walk is, too.
Brooks WALKING BENEFITS
Brooks walking is advantageous
for Brooks back pain relief along with the back pain
relieving Brooks chiropractic care at Soft Health and Healing Clinic! Walking is helpful
for chronic musculoskeletal pain sufferers as those with low back
pain, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. Walking is an effective 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 gaining 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 decreases
the risk of low back pain. Elongated walking sessions are ostensibly
better. Regular walking for a longer time for more than 3 days a week is significantly affiliated
with reduced low back pain risk. (3) Wonderfully,
a walking program is research-documented to offer the lowest
costs and the best chance of continuing to do it
by back pain patients. (4) Soft Health and Healing Clinic understands that our
Brooks chiropractic patients will like that balance!
