Everyone ought to exercise. Everybody
needs to move. Physical activity is for each and every one
of us. Is mountain climbing or marathon
running 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 Minster chiropractor at Minster Chiropractic Center is here to get you back to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and
knee distraction for the familiar matter of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY SEASON
A study conducted in Finland in 2017
followed the physical activity participation of 18-64 year
olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers discovered 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 perform
most consistently throughout the year regardless 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.
Proposals for physical activity recommendations must incorporate
those to inspire the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Minster Chiropractic Center is confident our Minster chiropractic patients and
their families can agree physical activities
to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can inspire
Winter and summer, Olympians move! They are 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 moving. A survey of Olympians
from the 1948 to 2018 games found that 32.4% describe
pain today, and 35.9% have functional limitations they connect to their Olympics’ days.
Knee (20.6% lasting 120 days median) and lumbar
spine (13.1% lasting 100 days) were the top two injuries Olympians
experienced in their training days. Depression was recounted
by 6.6% of them. (2) Minster Chiropractic Center presents these Olympians’
stats with our Minster chiropractic patients letting
them know thery are not alone in their pain struggles.
