Walk more to help manage pain!

Staying active can help you feel better, think better and look better. In addition, if you are suffering from pain, physical activity can help you heal. It is important to speak with your doctor first, but walking is a low impact way of getting your body moving. It does not cost any money, and it can be done just about anywhere (at home, the office, etc.).

Ultimately, walking more can positively impact your health, but there are certain things to take into consideration in order to ensure that it is as beneficial as possible.

First, make sure you stretch prior to beginning any type of exercise. Ask your doctor for tips on what type of stretches are safe for you. In order to burn calories and slim down, it is important to walk fairly quickly. This gets your heart rate up and helps your cardiovascular system. Plan out your walk so that you go the same distance each day, and then make sure you walk just a bit further the next time you’re out.

A pedometer is a great way to track how far you are walking and how many steps you are taking. It can help you set goals and increase the distance you walk each day. As you walk, make sure you allow your hands to swing from back to front.

walking for a active life style and pain relief

Were you injured with pain and are just now starting to feel like yourself? Walking is a great way to get active again and help yourself get to full strength. If you find that you feel pain while walking, there could be something else going on. Speak to your primary care physician and describe your symptoms. Superior Healthcare in Woodstock GA  can evaluate you and advise you on your next steps. For instance, if you have diabetes, walking is a great form of exercise for you. However, as you age, your doctor may advise you to wear soft shoes or may ask you to stay off hard surfaces. This can help if your bones are softening.

If you are concerned that you cannot engage in physical activity due to pain or may need help with pain relief management, contact us as soon as possible. We can help you feel like yourself again!
