"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." Now,
there’s a title to a research paper! Back And Neck Care Center was even startled a bit,
but it is true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all
have to keep going forward! This is never more real
for middle- to older-age Severna Park back and neck pain sufferers. Luckily,
Back And Neck Care Center is here for you.
ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS
We all start considering anti-aging
benefits at that certain age! One group of researchers stated
that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and called
for more research to acquire knowledge of just how molecular
mediators of exercise benefits work in older folks instead of just looking for pharmaceuticals. (1) Back And Neck Care Center wholeheartedly agrees! Walking is great!
This a terrific message for all Severna Park pain
BENEFICIAL DAILY EXERCISE STEPS
Walk each day with a goal of
7000 steps. Why? Research. 2,110 black and white men and women and their
steps-per-day counts were investigated. They wore
an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were monitored for a
mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were analyzed in 2020 and 2021
to measure what, if any, association was found between steps-per-day
and all-mortality death risk. This study was a portion of the larger
CARDIA (Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults) study.
Steps-taken-per-day were described as “low” (less than 7000),
“moderate” (7000-9999) and “high” (more than 10,000). Stepping intensity –
stepping rate – played a role, too. Moderate/high step rate was associated
with a decreased risk of mortality in black and
white women and men in middle-age who walked 7000 steps or more a
day compared with those who walked less. (2) Back And Neck Care Center sees
how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and encourages
Severna Park chiropractic patients to walk what
they can. Any walk will do!
EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN
How do most Severna Park back pain patients deal
with chronic low back pain? Some of the things people may say or
feel are these:
- I feel helpless because nothing works.
- I feel down and depressed.
- I distantly wish for an end to it.
- I accept the reality of my pain.
- The pain stays, I keep going.
What about you? There’s no right or
wrong answer. Back And Neck Care Center sees them all! Back And Neck Care Center is by
everyone’s side. We meet each back pain patient
– old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We create a
treatment plan together. The researchers who came up with the
above basic 5 categories of how patients manage
chronic low back pain recognized how pain influences
life. (3) So does Back And Neck Care Center. Coming to our
Severna Park chiropractic office is a positive step toward perseverance in managing pain and enjoying life!
