- 2 and a half hours a week.

Time goes by so quickly for all of us, including time for your Tonawanda chiropractic physician at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation. Your Tonawanda chiropractic physician at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation encourages Tonawanda 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 Tonawanda back pain sufferers especially for Tonawanda post-back surgery patients who still experience back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a notable 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 a week exercise expenditure and left them open to a second surgery (called a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the more than 150 minutes a week of exercise leaving them open to degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain. (6) 150 minutes a week doesn’t sound like much anymore, does it?
