Tonawanda Exercise Helps Cope with Pain and Aging

"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How’s that for a title to a paper?! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation was even taken back a bit, but it’s true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all have to keep moving forward! This is so true for middle- to older-age Tonawanda back and neck pain sufferers. Fortunately, Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is here to help.


We all start considering anti-aging benefits at a certain age! One group of researchers wrote that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and recommended more research to gain knowledge of just how molecular mediators of exercise benefits work in older folks instead of just turning to pharmaceuticals. (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation enthusiastically agrees! Walking is great! This an important message for all Tonawanda pain sufferers!


Walk 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 monitored for a mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were examined in 2020 and 2021 to measure what, if any, association was found between steps-per-day and all-mortality death risk. This study was a portion of the larger CARDIA (Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults) study. Steps-taken-per-day were described 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 associated with a reduced risk of mortality in black and white women and men in middle-age who took 7000 steps or more a day compared with those who took less. (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation witnesses how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and encourages Tonawanda chiropractic patients to take walks as best they can. Any walk works!


How do most Tonawanda 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 is no proper answer. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation sees them all! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation 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 formulated the above basic 5 categories of how sufferers deal with chronic low back pain acknowledged how pain impacts life. (3) So does Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation. Consulting our Tonawanda chiropractic office is a positive step toward resolution to managing pain and enjoying life!
