Walk. Walk. Walk. Running may have been a ‘go to’ exercise a few years ago. Speed may have been a goal at one time. Distance may have been the aim. Today, walking 90 minutes a week is an excellent aim for back pain sufferers seeking Nashua back pain relief. Moriarty Chiropractic suggests walking along with chiropractic spinal manipulation for peak walking ability and back pain relief.
EXERCISE FOR Nashua BACK PAIN RELIEF
Exercise is commonly recommended to back pain patients. Muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise are well documented to be effective for low back pain relief. But walking alone is not talked about as much? Moriarty Chiropractic encourages Nashua back pain patients to not add the word “just” before “walking”! Walking itself is a remarkably healing activity. Walking is essential to everyday life. Walking is something many of us undervalue until we can not walk or something like back pain prevents us from walking like we once did. A recent study verifies this: Walking more than ninety minutes per week was related to a lesser risk of self-reported low back pain in adults who are 50 years old and over. 90 minutes is not bad; regular walking for 30 minutes a day three times a week is best.

CHIROPRACTIC ENHANCES WALKING
Seeing a licensed chiropractor improves walking distance. A new research report discovered that an all-inclusive non-surgical training which included an exercise program directed by a chiropractor enhanced back and lower extremity fitness and lumbar spine flexibility, eased pain and improved walking distance for lumbar spinal stenosis sufferers. (2) That is significant! Moriarty Chiropractic uses gentle Cox® Technic spinal manipulation and promotes walking 3 times a week for 30 minutes each time. Being able to walk any distance for a half hour is essential!
