Brooks Walking is Good for You and Your Back!

Just walk. That’s all. Walk a bit today. Just walk the extent that you can. If you can only walk 3 minutes, awesome! Walk 5 minutes the next day. You will be pleasantly surprised at how fast you will feel better, your back will feel better, your outlook will be better. Walking is a usual recommendation at Soft Health and Healing Clinic for our Brooks chiropractic patients suffering with low back pain as well as those Brooks chiropractic patients who have other issues, too. Walking is an unfussy, cheap, effective activity for Brooks chiropractic patients while Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows that walking may be an activity some Brooks chiropractic patients may find disconcerting when they are in pain. Soft Health and Healing Clinic appreciates that and will be with you as you start walking.


In a new analysis of five randomized clinical controlled trials, researchers write that walking may be considered an alternative to other physical activity exercise. Walking makes better pain, disability and fear-avoidance in chronic low back pain patients. (Soft Health and Healing Clinic knows that some Brooks chiropractic patients fear movement like walking as they are anxious about their back pain might be provoked. Brooks 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 Brooks chiropractor at Soft Health and Healing Clinic.) Plus walking is inexpensive. (1) Soft Health and Healing Clinic will talk with you about how walking may improve your Brooks back pain relief treatment plan and how you feel about adding walking to your Brooks lifestyle.


Another recent research paper reveals that walking was as valuable as other non-pharmacological interventions for patient relief and disability reductions for patients with chronic low back pain in short (up to 3 months) and intermediate term (3 to 12 months) follow up. (2) Brooks walking is helpful for low back pain patients. Soft Health and Healing Clinic has seen the advantage of walking for many Brooks back pain patients and their Brooks back pain relief and prevention program.
