10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all those minutes? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Exercise does not always come in at number one on most people’s lists of favorite things to do with their time. It is recommended 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 Minster chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so quickly for everyone, including time for your Minster chiropractic physician at Minster Chiropractic Center. Your Minster chiropractic physician at Minster Chiropractic Center encourages Minster chiropractic patients to continue doing their exercise routines even when their Minster back pain is not so bad.
Benefits of Exercise
People sleep better, are happier and less depressed when they exercise. (1,2) Minster chiropractic patients do, too! Hearts and minds are healthier when their owners exercise. (3,4) Just take a walk down your Minster street, and see how much clearer you think and better you feel with your heart pumping. Exercise slows memory loss. (4) Exercise decreases depressive symptoms. (2) Blood pressure falls. (5) Life span may even expand due to heart workouts with aerobic exercise. (3) What do you think of all these possibilities? Minster Chiropractic Center encourages you to see the positives!
Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more crucial for Minster back pain sufferers particularly for Minster post-back surgery patients who still experience back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a notable 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 of age. 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 open to a second surgery (named a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the more than 150 minutes a week of exercise leaving them open to degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain. (6) 150 minutes a week doesn’t sound like much anymore, does it? Minster Chiropractic Center knows our Minster chiropractic patients can schedule 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Minster treatment plan of chiropractic care.
