Everybody ought to exercise. Everybody
needs to move. Physical activity is for all
of us. Is 5K running or rappelling up a cliff required? Not at all! Walking is superb.
Muscle strengthening is superb. Gardening when the season is right
is amazing. No gyms are even required 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 Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor at Spinal Care Clinic is ready to get you back to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and
knee distraction for the familiar issue of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY SEASON
A study done in Finland in 2017
traced the physical activity participation of 18-64 year
olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers found that the 18-64 year
olds met 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 interests people took part
in throughout the year? Cleaning/maintenance
work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they perform
most consistently all year irrespective 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.
Suggestions for physical activity recommendations must incorporate
those to encourage the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Spinal Care Clinic is confident our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients and
their families can find exercises
to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can inspire
Winter and summer, Olympians move! They’re really like us though their training may be a bit more on the
intense side. Elite athletes like the Olympians cope 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% have functional limitations they connect 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) Spinal Care Clinic presents these Olympians’
stats with our Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic patients to let
them know they’re not alone in their pain struggles.
