According to recent research, almost a third of you reading this have had back pain within the past three months.
The good news is back pain is rarely permanent.
The bad news is that if you don’t do anything to improve the health of your back, the pain will likely return. And often the next episode of pain will be more intense or take longer to go away.
Scientific studies show that walking improves the health of your back and decreases pain. This video explains how:
Improvements in back health occur when walking is a comfortable activity. If walking aggravates back pain, I recommend:
wearing shoes that provide cushion or shock-absorption (like this one),
walking with hiking poles, or
walking in a pool.
These sub-gravity solutions increase back health for people who experience more back pain due to the impact of walking.
