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

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

Sandy Springs WALKING 
 
Walking is vital for Sandy Springs living. How often do you think about walking? How many times are you grateful for the ability to put one foot in front of the other? Most Sandy Springs folks don’t give walking a second thought until we or a Sandy Springs loved one can not do it or is not able do it as easily as we once did. Chronic non-specific low back pain tends to affect Sandy Springs back pain patients’ motor control while walking. It is thought that the erector spinae are working strenuously 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 enhances the walking ability in back pain patients like those Cross Chiropractic Center 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 Sandy Springs chiropractic care at Cross Chiropractic Center uses one or all these approaches as appropriate to get you the Sandy Springs back pain relief you desire and keep you walking 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.

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

Sandy Springs CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Exercise Just a Little Each Week; It Helps!

It doesn’t require much to improve your health, decrease your back pain, and lessen your encounter with cervical spine disability. It really does not! A new report says that just 60 minutes of progressive exercise once a week causes a difference. Such exercise enriches overall physical health and decreases the rate of cervical disability and low back pain in patients with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Let’s – you and Cross Chiropractic Center - talk about how you might spend those 60 minutes with effective, do-able exercises just for you, our Sandy Springs chiropractic patient!
