Peoria Walking is Good for You and Your Back!

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, awesome! Walk 5 minutes tomorrow.

Walking is a usual recommendation at Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture for our Peoria chiropractic patients experiencing low back pain as well as those Peoria chiropractic patients who have other issues, too. Walking is a simple, economic, effective activity for Peoria chiropractic patients while Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture recognizes that walking may be an activity some Peoria chiropractic patients may find disconcerting when they are hurting. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture appreciates that and will be with you as you start walking.

Walking makes better pain, disability and fear-avoidance in chronic low back pain patients. (Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture recognizes that some Peoria chiropractic patients fear movement like walking as they are worried that their back pain might be provoked. Peoria low back pain patients will avoid exercise, avoid walking, avoid moving for fear of pain. If this sounds like you, please talk with your Peoria chiropractor at Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture.) Plus walking does not cost a thing.
