You & Olympians: Have Pain, Find Relief, Return to Exercise Year-Round

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 suitable 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 inspire 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 activity!

OLYMPIC EXERCISE

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% 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) 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.
