4 Health Benefits To Walking And Running

Family WalkingThe American Heart Association journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology published a study recently about the health benefits associated with walking and running.  At Back To Health Chiropractic Centre, we teach that the key to life-long wellness is prevention and healthy lifestyle choices. One of those lifestyle choices must be in the category of exercise, which is one of Back To Health Chiropractic Centre’s 5 Pillars of Great Health.

One of the easiest forms of exercise you can do that requires no gym membership, no weights and no equipment is walking and running.  Our clinic is a big advocate of walking and running as a form of exercise because of the many exercise-related health benefits they provide.

Here is what the American Heart Association journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology reported:

Walking and running can:

  1. Lower the risk of high blood pressure.
  2. Lower the risk of high cholesterol.
  3. Lower the risk of diabetes.
  4. Lower the risk of coronary heart disease.

Also, the health benefits increase the more people walk or run each week.

Keeping healthy is a process that involves lifestyle factors such as eating good foods and getting regular exercises.  Many of the degenerative diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer can be prevented with better lifestyle choices.  Start your wellness journey today by going for a walk or a run.
