10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all those minutes? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Exercise does not always come in at number one on most people’s lists of favorite things to do with their time. It is recommended that we all exercise at least 150 minutes a week. (6) That’s just
- 2 and a half hours a week.
- 5 sessions of 30 minutes a week.
- 10 sessions of 15 minutes a week.
It’s not that much, but we need to schedule it into our busy lives, don’t we? Even your West Palm Beach chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so quickly for all of us, including time for your West Palm Beach chiropractic physician at Chiropractic Care. Your West Palm Beach chiropractic physician at Chiropractic Care encourages West Palm Beach chiropractic patients to keep up their exercise routines even when they are feeling better and their back pain is better.

Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more crucial for West Palm Beach back pain sufferers particularly for West Palm Beach post-back surgery patients who still have back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a significant reduction in pain and reoperation rate states a new study of post-surgery back pain patients. In this study the mean age was 57 years old. 80% of them had degenerative diagnoses. 63% had gone through a multilevel back surgery. Only 35% of them met the greater than 1400 kcal per week exercise expenditure and left them vulnerable to a second surgery (named a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the greater than 150 minutes a week of exercise opening them to the risk of degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain. (6) 150 minutes a week does not sound like much anymore, does it? Chiropractic Care knows our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients can find 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole West Palm Beach treatment plan of chiropractic care.
