January 2019 Sitka Chiropractic Healthy News: Walking, Spinal Manipulation, & Exercise

If Sitka walking is an issue, Sitka chiropractic care may well get you walking better.  

The ability to walk is important for Sitka living. How many times a day do you think about walking? How often are you grateful for the ability to put one foot in front of the other? Most Sitka folks don’t give walking a second thought until we or a Sitka loved one can’t do it or can’t|can not]11] do it as effortlessly as we did at one time. Chronic non-specific low back pain is apt to disrupt Sitka back pain patients’ motor control when trying to walk normally. It is suspected that the erector spinae are functioning intensely in these patients, leading to a stiff lumbar-pelvic region and tougher time walking. (1) A new report shows that spinal manipulation in combination with individualized exercise enhances the walking ability in back pain patients like those Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka sees every day who are dealing with lumbar spinal stenosis better than medical care (medications/epidural steroid injections) and/or group exercise in the short term. (2) Further, spinal manipulation for patients with lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) also promotes the relief of leg and back pain, disability, range of motion and patient satisfaction. (3) The Sitka chiropractic care at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka uses one or all these tactics as needed to get you the Sitka back pain relief you desire and protect your walking ability without a doubt.
