Everyone ought to exercise. Everybody
needs 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 right
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! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can get us moving!
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. (2) Back And Neck Care Center shares these Olympians’
stats with our Severna Park chiropractic patients letting
them know they’re not alone in their pain struggles.
