Biomechanics for Healthy Walking

As you recover after bariatric surgery and become more active, walking is an excellent exercise to choose from. Using the proper walking technique will help you avoid stiffness and soreness so that you can move forward on your quest for fitness.

Watch this video to learn about the proper biomechanics for healthy walking. Pushing off with your back leg and using your arms for extra propulsion will take the pressure off your back, knees, and ankles and reduce post-walk soreness.

At Bariatric Care Centers, we can help you get more out of your life with weight loss surgery and comprehensive post-surgical support. You can learn more about weight loss surgery by calling 609-893-1200.
