Everyone ought to exercise. Everybody
needs to move. Physical activity is for all
of us. Is mountain climbing or marathon
running required? Nope! Walking is terrific.
Muscle strengthening is superb. Gardening when the season is decent
is wonderful. No gyms are even necessary for the physical
activity that will keep you feeling good. If a knee or back
injury occurs – and they do to the best of us! –
your West Palm Beach chiropractor at Chiropractic Care is ready to get you back to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and
knee distraction for the familiar issue of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY WEATHER
A study done in Finland in 2017
followed 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 activities people performed throughout that time? Cleaning/maintenance
work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they do
most consistently all year irrespective of
age/gender/season? Muscle-strengthening exercises and workout. Swimming,
skiing, gardening, jogging, and stair climbing were more age/gender/season
dependent. The researchers ultimately concluded
that there are certain conditioning activities people will do.
Suggestions for physical activity recommendations must incorporate
those to encourage the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Chiropractic Care is confident our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients and
their families can discover exercises
to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can get us moving!
Winter and summer, Olympians move! They are really like us though their training may be a bit more on the
intense side. Elite athletes like the Olympians deal with
pain and depression and keep going. A survey of Olympians
from the 1948 to 2018 games revealed that 32.4% describe
current pain, and 35.9% report current functional limitations
due to their Olympics’ days.
Knee (20.6% lasting 120 days median) and lumbar
spine (13.1% lasting 100 days) were the top two injuries Olympians
suffered in their training days. Depression was reported
by 6.6% of them. (2) Chiropractic Care presents these Olympians’
stats with our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients to let
them know they’re not alone in their pain struggles.
