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

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 SEASON

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 interests 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!

OLYMPIC EXERCISE

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.
