Richmond Back Pain Relief Helped by Walking 90 Minutes Weekly

Just walk! It’s easy. 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 is why…


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 is logical! Johnson Chiropractic’s recommendation to walk is, too.

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.

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.
