Just walk! It’s easy. It’s cheap.
It’s effective. Walking is a great means to
get healthy and stay healthy. Walking is a
fantastic way to find relief from chronic pain and back pain.
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic's Eugene chiropractic back pain specialist often suggests walking as one of the first
things to try to Eugene back pain patients. Here
WALK MORE. SIT LESS.
It may seem strange when Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic inquires about your sitting habits when you come in for Eugene
back pain treatment and relief, but it is not! It’s well
known and now even research documented that sitting
for extended periods of time is a risk factor for low back
pain. Recent research goes even further to point out that longer sitting and low physical activity
raises low back pain risk even more. (1) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic’s
curiosity about your sitting habits makes sense! Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic’s
recommendation to walk does, too.

activities like muscle strengthening and aerobic exercise have lots
of backing for effectively dealing with low back pain.
Weekly walking is growing more and more approval
to be included on this list of effective activities.

better. Regular walking for a longer time for more than 3 days a week is significantly associated
with decreased low back pain risk. (3) Excitingly,
