You & Olympians: Have Pain, Find Relief, Return to Exercise Year-Round

Everyone needs to exercise. Everybody outght to move. Physical activity is for all of us. Is 5K running or rappelling up a cliff required? Nope! Walking is superb. Muscle strengthening is superb. Gardening when the season is decent is amazing. No gyms are even necessary for the physical activity that will make you feel good. If a knee or back injury happens – and they do to the best of us! – your Severna Park chiropractor at Back And Neck Care Center is ready to get you back to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and knee distraction for the common matter of knee pain!

EXERCISE IN ANY WEATHER

A study conducted in Finland in 2017 tracked the physical activity participation of 18-64 year olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers discovered that the 18-64 year olds achieved the recommended guidelines for physical activity – 42% of men and 39% of women – better than the 65+ year olds – 26% men and 20% women. What were the most popular interests people took part in throughout that time? Cleaning/maintenance work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they do most consistently all year regardless of age/gender/season? Muscle-strengthening exercises and workout. Swimming, skiing, gardening, jogging, and stair climbing were more age/gender/season dependent. The researchers finally came to the conclusion that there are particular conditioning activities people will do. Suggestions for physical activity recommendations must use those to inspire the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Back And Neck Care Center is confident our Severna Park chiropractic patients and their families can find physical activities to do any time of year!

OLYMPIC EXERCISE

Winter and summer, Olympians move! They’re really like us though their training may be a bit more on the intense side. Elite athletes like the Olympians cope with pain and depression and keep moving. A study of Olympians from the 1948 to 2018 games revealed that 32.4% describe current pain, and 35.9% have functional limitations they connect to their Olympics’ days. Knee (20.6% lasting for a median of 120 days) and lumbar spine (13.1% lasting 100 days) were the top two injuries Olympians experienced in their training days. Depression was reported by 6.6% of them.
