Brooks Back Pain Benefits from Walking and Chiropractic Care

Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise a few years ago. Speed may have been a goal at one time. Distance may have been the aim. Today, walking 90 minutes a week is a worthy target for back pain sufferers seeking Brooks back pain relief. Soft Health and Healing Clinic suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for peak walking ability and back pain relief.


Exercise is usually recommended to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented as being effective for low back pain relief. But what about walking? Soft Health and Healing Clinic encourages Brooks back pain patients to not tag on the word “just” ahead of “walking”! Walking itself is an amazingly healing activity. Walking is basic to everyday life. Walking is one thing so many of us undervalue until we can not walk or something like back pain stops us from walking like we once did. A new research report corroborates this: Walking more than ninety minutes a week was related to a lesser risk of self-reported low back pain in adults over 50 years of age. 90 minutes is not much; regular walking for 30 minutes daily three times a week is optimal. (1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic suggests that our Brooks chiropractic patients walk.


Seeing a licensed chiropractor improves walking distance. A new research report found that an all-inclusive non-surgical training which included an exercise program guided by a chiropractor improved back and lower extremity fitness and lumbar spine flexibility, decreased pain and increased walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis patients. (2) That’s significant! Soft Health and Healing Clinic uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 30 minutes three times a week. Being able to walk any distance for 30 minutes is valuable!
