Everyone needs to exercise. Everyone
needs to move. Physical activity is for each and every one
of us. Is 5K running or rappelling up a cliff necessary? Not at all! Walking is terrific.
Muscle strengthening is just right. Gardening when the season is suitable
is amazing. No gyms are even necessary for the physical
activity that will keep you feeling good. If a knee or back
injury happens – and they happen to the best of us! –
your Tonawanda chiropractor at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is ready to return
you to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and
knee distraction for the common issue of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY WEATHER
A survey done in Finland in 2017
followed the physical activity participation of 18-64 year
olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers found 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 regardless of
age/gender/season? Muscle-strengthening exercises and workout. Swimming,
skiing, gardening, jogging, and stair climbing were more age/gender/season
dependent. The researchers finally concluded
that there are particular conditioning activities people will do.
Proposals for physical activity recommendations must use
those to encourage the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation is confident our Tonawanda chiropractic patients and
their families can discover physical activities
to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can inspire
Winter and summer, Olympians move! They are very
much like us though their training may be a bit more intense. 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% report
pain today, and 35.9% report current functional limitations
due to their Olympics’ days.
Knee (20.6% lasting 120 days median) and lumbar
spine (13.1% continuing for 100 days) were the top two injuries Olympians
suffered in their training days. Depression was recounted
by 6.6% of them. (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation presents these Olympians’
stats with our Tonawanda chiropractic patients letting
them know they’re not alone in their pain struggles.
