McHenry Walking is Good for You and Your Back!

Just walk. That it all. Walk a bit today. Just walk the extent that you can. If walking just 3 minutes is all for you, great! Walk 5 minutes tomorrow. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how fast you will feel better, your back will feel better, your outlook will be improved. Walking is a usual recommendation at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic for our McHenry chiropractic patients suffering with low back pain as well as those McHenry chiropractic patients who have other issues, too. Walking is a simple, economic, valuable activity for McHenry chiropractic patients while OrthoIllinois Chiropractic is aware that walking may be an activity some McHenry chiropractic patients may find intimidating when they are hurting. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic appreciates that and will be by your side as you begin walking.


In a new 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. (OrthoIllinois Chiropractic discerns that some McHenry chiropractic patients fear movement like walking as they are worried that their back pain may be provoked. McHenry low back pain patients will avoid exercise, avoid walking, avoid moving for fear of pain. If this sounds like you, please talk with your McHenry chiropractor at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic.) An added bonus: walking does not cost a thing. (1) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic will review with you about how walking may benefit your McHenry back pain relief treatment plan and how you feel about integrating walking into your McHenry lifestyle.


Another recent report shares that walking was as effective as other non-pharmacological interventions for patient relief and disability reductions for patients with chronic low back pain in short (up to 3 months) and intermediate term (3 to 12 months) follow up. (2) McHenry walking is helpful for low back pain patients. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic has seen the advantage of walking for many McHenry back pain patients and their McHenry back pain relief and prevention program.
