January 2019 Georgetown Chiropractic Healthy News: Walking, Spinal Manipulation, & Exercise

If Georgetown walking is a problem, Georgetown chiropractic care may well get you walking better.  

Georgetown WALKING 
The ability to walk is valuable for Georgetown living. How many times a day do you think about walking? How many times are you thankful for the ability to put one foot in front of the other? Most Georgetown folks do not give walking a second thought until we or a Georgetown loved one can’t do it or can’t|can not]11] do it as effortlessly as we did at one time. Chronic non-specific low back pain is apt to disrupt Georgetown back pain patients’ motor control when trying to walk normally. It is suspected that the erector spinae are working overtime in these patients, resulting in a stiff lumbar-pelvic region and tougher time walking. (1) A new report points out that spinal manipulation combined with individualized exercise improves the walking ability in back pain patients like those Dr. Butwell 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) Additionally, spinal manipulation for patients with lumbar radiculopathy (leg pain) also advances the relief of leg and back pain, disability, range of motion and patient satisfaction. (3) The Georgetown chiropractic care at Dr. Butwell uses one or all these approaches as appropriate to get you the Georgetown back pain relief you want and keep you walking without your giving it a second thought.

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Dan Shuman on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about leg pain relief with his chiropractic care incorporating the Cox® Technic System and exercise.

 Dr. Butwell encourages exercise for better physical health as well as reduced cervical and lumbar pain. 

Exercise Just a Little Each Week; It Helps!

It does not require much to improve your health, reduce your back pain, and lessen your experience of cervical spine disability. It really doesn’t! A recent study says that just 60 minutes of progressive exercise once a week causes a difference. Such exercise enriches overall physical health and lowers the rate of cervical disability and low back pain in patients with musculoskeletal pain. (4) Let us – you and Dr. Butwell - discuss how you might spend those 60 minutes with effective, do-able exercises just for you, our Georgetown chiropractic patient!
