Just walk! It’s simple. It’s economical.
It’s effective. Walking is a great means to
get healthy and stay healthy. Walking is a
fantastic way to discover relief from chronic pain and back pain.
Johnson Chiropractic's Richmond chiropractic back pain specialist often advises walking as one of the initial
activities to try to Richmond back pain patients. Here’s why…
WALK MORE. SIT LESS.
It may seem odd when Johnson Chiropractic asks about your sitting habits when you visit Johnson Chiropractic for Richmond
back pain treatment and relief, but it’s not! It is well
known and now even supported by research that sitting
for longer periods of time is a risk factor for low back
pain. Recent research reports
more emphatically that longer sitting and low physical activity
increases low back pain risk even more. (1) Johnson Chiropractic’s
curiosity about your sitting habits makes sense! Johnson Chiropractic’s
recommendation to walk does, too.
Richmond WALKING BENEFITS
Richmond walking is beneficial
for Richmond back pain relief along with the back pain
relieving Richmond chiropractic care at Johnson Chiropractic! Walking is good
for chronic musculoskeletal pain sufferers like those with low back
pain, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. Walking is an effective kind
of exercise for chronic pain relief and is related to
significant improvements in pain and function. (2) Exercise and physical
activities like muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise have plenty
of backing for effectively dealing with low back pain.
Weekly walking is gaining more and more favor
to be added to this list of effective activities.
For over-50 year olds, weekly walking of 90 minutes a week decreases
the risk of low back pain. Lengthier walking sessions are seemingly
better. Routine walking with lengthier
duration for more than 3 days a week is significantly affiliated
with decreased low back pain risk. (3) Wonderfully,
a walking program is research-documented to have the cheapest
costs and the best chance of continuing to do it
by back pain patients. (4) Johnson Chiropractic understands that our
Richmond chiropractic patients will appreciate that balance!
