Walking for Health: The How-To

Everyone knows that walking is the best exercise.

We need to walk 3,00 steps per day for great health. But, walks as much as you can.

There are a lot of words that describe walking.

  • Amble
  • Dwadle
  • Hike
  • Jaunt
  • March
  • Meander
  • Plod
  • Roam
  • Sashay
  • Stomp
  • Stride
  • Stroll
  • Traipse
  • Trek
  • Trudge

But none of these captures the kind of walking that we need to perform for our health.

Healthy walking includes more than just “Putting in our Time” sightseeing around the block.

Healthy walking means keeping an aerobic pace, and taking enough posture-straightening, muscle lengthening steps.

And these steps need to be taken with quality, supportive shoes with the right muscles leading.

The right walking style and technique leads to avoiding pain when done right, and to decreasing pain if you are correcting poor walking habits.

Your Physician Assistant or other health care professional can demonstrate correct walking steps and posture. Just Ask!

And, if you live in a climate like San Antonio, Texas…you can walk outside…at certain times of the day…all year.
