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

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

Walking is vital for McHenry lifestyle. How often do you think about walking? How many times are you thankful for being able to walk? Most McHenry folks do not give walking a second thought until we or a McHenry loved one can’t do it or can’t|can not]11] do it as easily as we once did. Chronic non-specific low back pain tends to affect McHenry back pain patients’ motor control when trying to walk normally. It is suspected that the erector spinae are working strenuously in these patients, resulting in a stiff lumbar-pelvic region and tougher time walking. (1) A recent report shows that spinal manipulation in combination with individualized exercise enhances the walking ability in back pain patients like those OrthoIllinois Chiropractic sees every day who are dealing with lumbar spinal stenosis better than medical care (medications/epidural steroid injections) and/or group exercise in the short term. (2) Additionally, spinal manipulation for patients with lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) also advances the relief of leg and back pain, disability, range of motion and patient satisfaction. (3) The McHenry chiropractic care at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic incorporates one or all these approaches as appropriate to get you the McHenry 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.

 OrthoIllinois Chiropractic 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 take much to improve your health, decrease your back pain, and lessen your experience of cervical spine disability. It really does not! A recent study states that just 60 minutes of progressive exercise one time a week causes a difference. Such exercise betters overall physical health and decreases the incidence of cervical disability and low back pain in patients with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Let us – you and OrthoIllinois Chiropractic - talk about how you might fill those 60 minutes with useful, do-able exercises just for you, our McHenry chiropractic patient!
