What is the power contained within a simple walk?
The power is profound: walking for just half an hour per day can be a godsend to joints that are silently crying out for movement. It frees your body and your mind, fighting back against both physical pain and mental anxiety. It allows you to re-focus your thoughts and gain perspective that cannot be gained through sitting around doing nothing! Let’s take a look at the power of walking from a chiropractor’s perspective.
The stress is in your spine
Every day, you put your spine through countless motions and stresses that cause general wear and tear on the vertebrae and surrounding muscles. Physical and mental stress combine to cause slight misalignments of the spine, called subluxation, and put pressure on the associated nerves. This can cause you to feel out of sorts and limit your range of motion.
