10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all those minutes? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Is exercise number one on your list?! Researchers recommend that all of us put in at least 150 minutes of exercise a week. (6) That’s only
- 2 and a half hours a week.
- 5 sessions of 30 minutes a week.
- 10 sessions of 15 minutes a week.
That does not seem like much, but we need to schedule it into our busy lives, don’t we? Even your Millville chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so fast for everyone, including time for your Millville chiropractic physician at Wilson Family Chiropractic. Your Millville chiropractic physician at Wilson Family Chiropractic encourages Millville chiropractic patients to continue doing their exercise routines even when their Millville back pain is not so bad.

Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more crucial for Millville back pain sufferers especially for Millville post-back surgery patients who still have back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a remarkable reduction in pain and reoperation rate reports a new study of post-surgery back pain patients. In this study the mean age was 57 years old. 80% of them had degenerative diagnoses. 63% had gone through a multilevel back surgery. Only 35% of them met the greater than 1400 kcal a week exercise expenditure and left them vulnerable to a second surgery (named a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the greater than 150 minutes a week of exercise opening them to the risk of degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain. (6) 150 minutes a week doesn’t sound like much anymore, does it? Wilson Family Chiropractic knows our Millville chiropractic patients can find 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Millville treatment plan of chiropractic care.
