Just walk! It’s simple. It’s economical.
It’s effective. Walking is a great means to
get healthy and stay healthy. Walking is a
fantastic way to discover relief from chronic pain and back pain.
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka's Sitka chiropractic back pain specialist often suggests walking as one of the initial
things to try to Sitka back pain patients. Here’s why…
WALK MORE. SIT LESS.
It may seem strange when Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka asks about your sitting habits when you come in for Sitka
back pain treatment and relief, but it is not! It’s well
known and now even research documented that sitting
for extended periods of time is a risk factor for low back
pain. Recent research reports
more emphatically that longer sitting and low physical activity
increases low back pain risk even more. (1) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka’s
curiosity about your sitting habits is logical! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka’s recommendation
to walk is, too.
Sitka WALKING BENEFITS
Sitka walking is beneficial
for Sitka back pain relief along with the back pain
relieving Sitka chiropractic care at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka! Walking is helpful
for chronic musculoskeletal pain sufferers as those with low back
pain, fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. Walking is an effective style
of exercise for chronic pain relief and is related to
significant improvements in pain and function. (2) Exercise and physical
activities like muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise have lots
of backing for effectively managing low back pain.
Weekly walking is gaining more and more favor
to be added to this list of effective activities.
For over-50 year olds, weekly walking of 90 minutes a week reduces
the risk of low back pain. Longer walking sessions are ostensibly
better. Routine walking for a longer time for more than 3 days a week is significantly affiliated
with decreased low back pain risk. (3) Wonderfully,
a walking program is research-documented to offer the lowest
costs and the highest level of continuing to do it
by back pain patients. (4) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka knows that our
Sitka chiropractic patients will appreciate that balance!
