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

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

Lynchburg WALKING 
Walking is valuable for Lynchburg lifestyle. How often do you think about walking? How often are you grateful for the ability to put one foot in front of the other? Most Lynchburg folks don’t give walking a second thought until we or a Lynchburg loved one can not do it or isn’t able do it as easily as we once did. Chronic non-specific low back pain tends to affect Lynchburg back pain patients’ motor control when trying to walk normally. It’s suspected that the erector spinae are functioning overtime in these patients, resulting in a stiff lumbar-pelvic region and more difficult time walking. (1) A recent report shows that spinal manipulation combined with individualized exercise improves the walking ability in back pain patients like those Palmer Chiropractic Center sees every day who are suffering 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 Lynchburg chiropractic care at Palmer Chiropractic Center incorporates one or all these tactics as appropriate to get you the Lynchburg back pain relief you want and protect your walking ability without your giving it a second thought.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Dan Shuman on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about leg pain relief with his chiropractic care using the Cox® Technic System and exercise.

 Palmer Chiropractic Center encourages exercise for improved physical health as well as reduced cervical and lumbar pain. 

Exercise Just a Little Each Week; It Helps!

It does not require much to better your health, reduce your back pain, and diminish your experience of cervical spine disability. It really doesn’t! A recent study states that just 60 minutes of progressive exercise one time a week causes a difference. Such exercise improves overall physical health and reduces the occurrence of cervical disability and low back pain in patients with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Let’s – you and Palmer Chiropractic Center - discuss how you might spend those 60 minutes with useful, do-able exercises just for you, our Lynchburg chiropractic patient!
