Just walk. That it it. Walk a bit today. Just walk as far as you can. If you can only walk 3 minutes, great! Walk 5 minutes the next day. You’ll be astonished at how quickly you’ll feel better, your back will feel better, your outlook will be better. Walking is a customary recommendation at Young Chiropractic for our Easley chiropractic patients experiencing low back pain as well as those Easley chiropractic patients who have other issues, too. Walking is an unfussy, cheap, valuable activity for Easley chiropractic patients while Young Chiropractic is aware that walking may be an activity some Easley chiropractic patients may find intimidating when they are in pain. Young Chiropractic gets it and will be by your side as you start walking.
WALKING VERSUS OTHER EXERCISE
In a new analysis of five randomized clinical controlled trials, researchers write that walking may be deemed an alternative to other physical activity exercise. Walking improves pain, disability and fear-avoidance in chronic low back pain patients. (Young Chiropractic knows that some Easley chiropractic patients fear movement like walking as they are anxious about their back pain may be aggravated. Easley 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 Easley chiropractor at Young Chiropractic.) An added bonus: walking is inexpensive. (1) Young Chiropractic will review with you about how walking may improve your Easley back pain relief treatment plan and how you feel about adding walking to your Easley lifestyle.
WALKING VERSUS NON-DRUG INTERVENTIONS
Another recent research paper shares 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) Easley walking is helpful for low back pain patients. Young Chiropractic has witnessed the advantage of walking for many Easley back pain patients and their Easley back pain relief and prevention program.
