Richmond Walking is Good for You and Your Back!

January 16, 2018

Just walk. That it all. Walk a little today. Just walk as far as you can. If walking just 3 minutes is all for you, awesome! Walk 5 minutes the next day. You will be astonished at how fast you will feel better, your back will feel better, your outlook will be improved. Walking is a usual recommendation at Johnson Chiropractic for our Richmond chiropractic patients suffering with 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 overwhelming when they are in pain. Johnson Chiropractic understands and will be with you as you start walking.


In a recent analysis of five randomized clinical controlled trials, researchers share that walking may be thought of as an alternative to other physical activity exercise. Walking makes better pain, disability and fear-avoidance in chronic low back pain patients. (Johnson Chiropractic recognizes that some Richmond chiropractic patients fear movement like walking as they are worried that their back pain may be aggravated. Richmond 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 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.


An additional report discloses that walking was as successful 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 helpful for low back pain patients. Johnson Chiropractic has witnessed the benefit of walking for many Richmond back pain patients and their Richmond back pain relief and prevention program.
