Walking Away Back Pain

European researchers have supporting evidence that moderate physical activity is beneficial for many people with acute low back pain. In a recent study, researchers found back pain sufferers had a reduction in their level of back pain after 10-15 minutes of treadmill walking at a self-selected speed. A word or caution: Those suffering from back pain should always seek the advise of their licensed chiropractor or other health care professional prior to initiating any physical activity when pain is present. Only a licensed health care provider can determine if physical activity is safe and/or appropriate for your particular condition.
