Just walk. That’s all. Walk a little today. Just walk as far as you can. If walking just 3 minutes is all for you, great! Walk 5 minutes the next day. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how quickly you’ll feel better, your back will feel better, your outlook will be improved. Walking is a common recommendation at New Hampshire Spine and Sport for our Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients suffering with low back pain as well as those Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients who have other issues, too. Walking is an unfussy, economic, effective activity for Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients while New Hampshire Spine and Sport knows that walking may be an activity some Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients may find intimidating when they are hurting. New Hampshire Spine and Sport appreciates that and will be by your side as you start walking.
WALKING VERSUS OTHER EXERCISE
In a recent analysis of five randomized clinical controlled trials, researchers share that walking may be deemed an alternative to other physical activity exercise. Walking improves pain, disability and fear-avoidance in chronic low back pain patients. (New Hampshire Spine and Sport recognizes that some Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients fear movement like walking as they are worried that their back pain might be aggravated. Southern New Hampshire low back pain patients will avoid exercise, avoid walking, avoid moving for fear of pain. If this sounds like you, please have a conversation with your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor at New Hampshire Spine and Sport.) Plus walking does not cost a thing.

WALKING VERSUS NON-DRUG INTERVENTIONS
Another recent research paper discloses that walking was as successful as other non-pharmacological interventions for patient relief and disability decreases for patients with chronic low back pain in short (up to 3 months) and intermediate term (3 to 12 months) follow up. (2) Southern New Hampshire walking is helpful for low back pain patients. New Hampshire Spine and Sport has seen the benefit of walking for many Southern New Hampshire back pain patients and their Southern New Hampshire back pain relief and prevention program.
