Millville Exercise Helps Cope with Pain and Aging

"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." Now, there is a title to a research paper! Wilson Family Chiropractic was even startled a bit, but it is true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all have to keep moving forward! This is so real for middle- to older-age Millville back and neck pain sufferers. Fortunately, Wilson Family Chiropractic is here for you.


We all start looking for anti-aging benefits at a certain age! One set of researchers stated that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and recommended more research to gain knowledge of just how molecular mediators of exercise benefits work in older folks rather than just turning to pharmaceuticals. (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic wholeheartedly agrees! Walking is great! This an important message for all Millville pain sufferers!


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 followed. They wore an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were followed for a mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were examined 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 linked to 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) Wilson Family Chiropractic sees how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and encourages Millville chiropractic patients to walk what they can. Any walk works!


How do most Millville back pain patients deal with chronic low back pain? Some of the things people may express 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 is no proper answer. Wilson Family Chiropractic sees them all! Wilson Family Chiropractic is by everyone’s side. We meet each back pain sufferer – 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 manage chronic low back pain acknowledged how pain impacts life. (3) So does Wilson Family Chiropractic. Visiting our Millville chiropractic office is a good step toward perseverance in managing pain and enjoying life!
