Everybody needs to exercise. Everybody
outght to move. Physical activity is for each and every one
of us. Is 5K running or rappelling up a cliff necessary? Not at all! Walking is superb.
Muscle strengthening is superb. Gardening when the season is right
is wonderful. No gyms are even required for the physical
activity that will make you feel good. If a knee or back
injury happens – and they do to the best of us! –
your Millville chiropractor at Wilson Family Chiropractic is here to return
you to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and
knee distraction for the common issue of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY SEASON
A survey conducted in Finland in 2017
followed 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 activities people performed throughout the year? Cleaning/maintenance
work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they do
most consistently throughout the 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 certain 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? Wilson Family Chiropractic is confident our Millville chiropractic patients and
their families can agree physical activities
to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can get us moving!
Winter and summer, Olympians move! They’re very
much 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 moving. A survey of Olympians
from the 1948 to 2018 games found that 32.4% report
current pain, 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 reported
by 6.6% of them. (2) Wilson Family Chiropractic shares these Olympians’
stats with our Millville chiropractic patients letting
them know thery are not alone in their pain struggles.
