You’re probably sick and tired of Scott telling you to “go for a walk” after your adjustment. He doesn’t say this just to annoy you, there are very good reasons why a short 5-10 minute walk after your adjustment adds value to your care.
The reasons are as follows:
Your discs do not have a blood supply and rely on mobility and movement for their nutritional requirements. They act like a sponge with movement which they receive whilst walking pumping nutrients into the disc.
Sitting places increased stress on our discs. When you walk out of the clinic and jump in your car the stresses will return to your spine, so walking gives the discs a rest after an adjustment.
Walking is also the best exercise for spinal joints. Adjustments free up adhesion’s in your spinal joints and walking helps improve the mobility and reprograms the signals from your spinal joints to your brain.
