Walking is important
for Eugene living. How often do you think about walking? How often are you thankful
for being able to walk?
Most Eugene folks don’t give walking a second thought
until we or a Eugene loved one can’t do it or isn’t able do it as easily as we once
did. Chronic non-specific low back pain
tends to affect
Eugene back pain patients’ motor control when
trying to walk normally. It’s suspected that the
erector spinae are functioning overtime
in these patients, leading to a stiff lumbar-pelvic region
and tougher time walking. (1)
A new report points
out that spinal manipulation combined with
individualized exercise enhances the walking ability in back
like those Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic sees every day who are suffering
with lumbar spinal stenosis
better than medical care (medications/epidural
steroid injections) and/or group exercise in the short term. (2)
spinal manipulation for patients with lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) also promotes
the relief of leg and back pain, disability, range of motion and patient
The Eugene chiropractic care
at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic uses
one or all these tactics as appropriate to get
you the Eugene back pain relief you desire and protect your walking ability without a doubt.

Eugene CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH:
Exercise Just a Little Each Week; It Helps!
It doesn’t require much to improve
your health, reduce your back pain, and diminish
your encounter with cervical spine disability. It really does
not! A new study states
that just 60 minutes of progressive exercise one time a week makes
a difference. Such exercise enriches overall physical
health and reduces the rate
of cervical disability and low back pain in patients with musculoskeletal pain.
(4) Let’s – you and Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic - discuss how
you might fill those 60 minutes with useful,
do-able exercises just for you, our Eugene chiropractic patient!
