The benefits of walking

The spine is in it’s best position when we walk. If we think of our body in terms of stagnant and moving and consider how much time we spend being stagnant during the day, then walking is the ideal activity to counter act static postures. It will tone all the muscles the more that we do. Our lungs are not squished down like when we sit or drive, so we can get all that extra oxygen into the body. Walking is prescriptive at the clinic. I have had it ease so many cases of neck pain. Occasionally walking can cause stiffness in the lower back afterwards and the factors contributing towards this will need addressing. SO, the question is. How much do you walk?
