Cross Chiropractic Center invites Sandy Springs back pain sufferers
and neck pain sufferers to walk. Walking is easy and valuable in managing pain. Walks don’t have be crazy
long! A walk in the park or around the neighborhood effects positive change!
BACK PAIN’S DAILY IMPACT
$200 billion dollars annually go to
back pain management. Back pain is a top and widespread
reason of medical care visits to primary care and emergency settings.
Back pain is a top cause for worker compensation,
lost work hours, and lost productivity. 90% of back pain is
mechanical. 12 to 33% of people are reported to have had
back pain at any point in time, making back pain a main focus
of medical care and of sufferers’ attention and inattention to the daily
workings of life. (1) Back pain is expensive and daily-life-limiting for many.
SPINAL STENOSIS AND WALKING
Walking is a such a day-to-day necessity. One
newer study stated that back and neck pain were
positively and significantly associated with workplace absenteeism mostly caused
by difficulty standing, sitting, and walking. (2) Walking is a vital
daily function! Back pain sufferers headed to surgery will do well to improve
their walking capacity before surgery. The greater the walking capacity
pre-surgery. The better the walking capacity afterwards. Lumbar spinal stenosis as an underlying issue for back
pain decreases walking and quality of life for its sufferers.
Lumbar spinal stenosis is the main indication for spinal
surgery in older adults, 40% of whom, even after back surgery, still
reported walking disability. (3) Cross Chiropractic Center encourages
walking for everyone!
WALK IN A PARK!
Exercise like walking is a simple, straight-forward
way to lessen Sandy Springs back pain. Walking in a park may be enticing.
Well-designed parks are said to enhance
public health. An interview study of peoples’ opinions about what creates
an inviting park described that trees, gardens,
open spaces, and water features were highly appreciated.
Walking/bike trails, basketball hoops, sports/climbing walls were described
as physical activity boosters. Seating, tables, and picnic
areas were reported necessary for social
