Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre invites Toronto back pain sufferers
and neck pain sufferers to walk. Walking is easy and effective in the management of pain. Walks don’t have be crazy
long! A walk in the park or around the neighborhood works wonders!
BACK PAIN’S DAILY IMPACT
$200 billion dollars a year fund
back pain management. Back pain is a leading and common
cause of medical care visits to primary care and emergency settings.
Back pain is a top reason for worker compensation,
lost work hours, and lost productivity. 90% of back pain is
mechanical. 12 to 33% of people are stated to experience
back pain at any point in time, making back pain a primary focus
of medical care and of sufferers’ attention and inattention to the daily
events of life. (1) Back pain is costly 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 triggered
by difficulty standing, sitting, and walking. (2) Walking is a vital
daily function! Back pain sufferers headed to surgery will do well to boost
their walking capacity before surgery. The greater the walking capacity
pre-surgery. The greater the walking capacity afterwards. Lumbar spinal stenosis as an underlying issue for back
pain reduces 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
described walking disability. (3) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre urges
walking for everyone!

Exercise like walking is a simple, straight-forward
way to lessen Toronto back pain. Walking in a park may be attractive.

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
