Richmond Walking is Good for You and Your Back!

Just walk. That it all. Walk a little today. Just walk as far as you can. If you can only walk 3 minutes, awesome! Walk 5 minutes next time. You will be astonished at how rapidly you’ll feel better, your back will recover, your outlook will be better. Walking is a popular recommendation at Johnson Chiropractic for our Richmond chiropractic patients experiencing low back pain as well as those Richmond chiropractic patients who have other issues, too. Walking is a simple, inexpensive, effective activity for Richmond chiropractic patients while Johnson Chiropractic recognizes that walking may be an activity some Richmond chiropractic patients may find intimidating when they are hurting. Johnson Chiropractic appreciates that and will be with you as you start walking.


In a recent analysis of five randomized clinical controlled trials, researchers write that walking may be deemed an alternative to other physical activity exercise. Walking makes better pain, disability and fear-avoidance in chronic low back pain patients. (Johnson Chiropractic knows that some Richmond chiropractic patients fear movement like walking as they are concerned their back pain may be aggravated. Richmond low back pain patients will avoid exercise, avoid walking, avoid moving for fear of pain. If this is a familiar feeling for you, please talk with your Richmond chiropractor at Johnson Chiropractic.) An added bonus: walking is inexpensive. (1) Johnson Chiropractic will review with you about how walking may benefit your Richmond back pain relief treatment plan and how you feel about adding walking to your Richmond lifestyle.


Another recent report discloses that walking was as effective as other non-pharmacological interventions for patient relief and disability decreases for patients with chronic low back pain in short (up to 3 months) and intermediate term (3 to 12 months) follow up. (2) Richmond walking is beneficial for low back pain patients. Johnson Chiropractic has witnessed the value of walking for many Richmond back pain patients and their Richmond back pain relief and prevention program.
