"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How is that for a
title to a paper?! Chiropractic Care was even startled a bit,
but it’s true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all
have to keep going forward! This is never more true
for middle- to older-age West Palm Beach back and neck pain sufferers. Luckily,
Chiropractic Care is here to help.
ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS
We all start considering anti-aging
benefits at that certain age! One set of researchers wrote
that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and called
for more research to gain knowledge of just how molecular
mediators of exercise benefits function in older folks instead of just looking for pharmaceuticals. (1) Chiropractic Care enthusiastically agrees! Walking is amazing!
This an important message for all West Palm Beach pain
BENEFICIAL DAILY EXERCISE STEPS
Take a walking stroll 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 followed. They wore
an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were followed 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 part of the larger
CARDIA (Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults) study.
Steps-taken-per-day were defined 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 linked to a reduced 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 took less. (2) Chiropractic Care sees
how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges
West Palm Beach chiropractic patients to walk what
they can. Any walk will do!
EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN
How do most West Palm Beach back pain patients cope
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 proper answer. Chiropractic Care sees them all! Chiropractic Care is present to help. We meet each back pain sufferer
– old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We build a
treatment plan together. The researchers who came up with the
above basic 5 categories of how patients manage
chronic low back pain acknowledged how pain influences
life. (3) So does Chiropractic Care. Coming to our
West Palm Beach chiropractic office is a positive step toward perseverance in managing pain and enjoying life!
