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 an
unfussy, 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 VERSUS OTHER EXERCISE
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 provoked.
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.
WALKING VERSUS NON-DRUG INTERVENTIONS
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.
