physical activity really important? Back pain sufferers wonder,
especially those who try to avoid physical activity! May Tonawanda back pain sufferers are not exercisers by
nature. (Are you?) Your Tonawanda chiropractor meets all types
of back pain sufferers and knows all sorts of physical activity
options that may be more interesting. At Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation we try
to pair the exercise option to the chronic back pain sufferer
and symptomatology to optimize the outcomes of
exercise described in research studies to be valuable
in managing, relieving, and preventing back pain.
3 HOURS OF LEISURE TIME: What do you do?
How do you spend your non-work hours impacts
your back pain experience! Let’s first define
sedentary versus physically active.
Researchers in one study defined physically active folks as
those who were more active in their leisure time. They spent 3
hours of their leisure time per day being physically active. Sedentary
folks spent 3 hours or more a day of their leisure time sitting.
Physically active folks were 33% less likely to have low back pain contrasted
with more sedentary folks. (1) Takeaway: Be more physically active in your
off-time! Like gardening? Garden! Like walking? Walk! Like talking? Take a walk
with a friend, and talk!
ACTIVE AND SEDENTARY BACK PAIN SUFFERERS AND THEIR ACTIVITY
We are all different! Regarding back pain, the difference comes to light even more in some
regards. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation knows a few chronic low back
pain patients are more prone to exercising and
being physically active than others who are more
sedentary. What is the difference in these folks? Researchers
found a few things: more physically active folks (those
who do at least 150 minutes of moderate or 75 mins.
of vigorous physical activity per week) have a lower
body mass index and higher levels of leisure time physical activity. Sedentary
folks (those who spend more than 8 hours of time in sedentary
activities per day) are more likely to have lesser
levels of activity at work. (2) Hum? We know that such patient characteristics
need to be considered when treating back pain patients and
encouraging physical activity and reducing sedentary lifestyle activity. How
can Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation assist our more sedentary back pain sufferers?
these little bits of information is helpful! Your Tonawanda
chiropractor is here for you. Let us know your ideas
on how we can assist you!
