As autumn approaches, there’s still time to enjoy some outdoor time before the winter sets in.
Walking is an excellent form of exercise for those with lower back pain
As an experienced chiropractor in Stoke on Trent I advise many patient’s to take exercise and walking is one of the best forms you can take.
Many people with lower back pain find that strenuous exercise only exacerbates their condition, but light walking is the ideal alternative, actually having a positive impact on the back. Regular walking strengthens muscles throughout the body and in particular in the feet hips, legs and torso and it significantly increases the stability of the spine, allowing you to walk more upright. In addition, walking can have a great impact on the spinal structures as it promotes circulation, improves posture and flexibility and strengthens bones.
For those suffering from long term back pain, gentle walking can help alleviate associated problems while enabling you to enjoy a variety of daily activities and can reduce the likelihood of more severe back pain in future.
