5 positive effects on the spine when walking

There are several positive effects on the spine when walking.. In general, exercise is a good option for both treating and preventing back pain. However, there are some extra considerations that you should take into account to avoid complicating your problem.

Why does the back hurt?

There are many causes of back pain. Some of the most common have to do with overloading the muscles and tissues that support the spine. This can cause pressure on the nerves that run through the vertebrae, sending pain signals to the brain.

Positive effects on the spine when walking

Walking helps the spine in several ways, for example:

  • 1. It can help you lose weight , by decreasing the pressure of your body weight on your back.
  • 2. Walking can help strengthen the back muscles indirectly and does not have a great impact on the joints
  • 3. Walking releases endorphins, , which can help you cope with pain in a positive way.
  • 4. It helps release tension in the muscles, decreasing pain that is already present.
  • 5. Although it may not seem so it also helps to strengthen the back by the movement generated in the arms.

NOTE: It is important to mention that if you already have a back problem (such as chronic pain or a herniated disc) you should carry out any physical activity with caution. Consult with a health professional about the physical activities recommended for your situation.

Rehabilitation and weight control

Physical rehabilitation and weight control are fundamental elements of any treatment for back pain. In addition, they are great activities for preventing back pain and general body weakness.
