"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How is that for a
title to a paper?! Spinal Care Clinic was even startled a bit,
but it is true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all
have to keep going forward! This is never more true
for middle- to older-age Burlington and Hamilton back and neck pain sufferers. Fortunately,
Spinal Care Clinic is here to help.
ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS
We all start looking for anti-aging
benefits at that certain age! One group of researchers wrote
that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and called
for more research to acquire knowledge of just how molecular
mediators of exercise benefits work in older folks instead of just looking for pharmaceuticals. (1) Spinal Care Clinic enthusiastically agrees! Walking is amazing!
This an important message for all Burlington and Hamilton pain
BENEFICIAL DAILY EXERCISE STEPS
Take a walking stroll 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 studied. They sported
an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were followed for a
mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were analyzed in 2020 and 2021
to see what, if any, association was made 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 defined 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 walked 7000 steps or more a
day compared with those who walked less. (2) Spinal Care Clinic witnesses
how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges
Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients to take walks as best
they can. Any walk works!
EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN
How do most Burlington and Hamilton back pain patients deal
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’s no proper answer. Spinal Care Clinic sees them all! Spinal Care Clinic is by
everyone’s side. We meet each back pain patient
– old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We create a
treatment plan together. The researchers who came up with the
above basic 5 categories of how sufferers deal with
chronic low back pain acknowledged how pain impacts
life. (3) So does Spinal Care Clinic. Visiting our
Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic office is a positive step toward resolution
to managing pain and enjoying life!
