Easley Exercise Helps Cope with Pain and Aging

October 05, 2021

"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How is that for a title to a paper?! Young 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 Easley back and neck pain sufferers. Fortunately, Young Chiropractic is here for you.


We all start considering 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 gather knowledge of just how molecular mediators of exercise benefits work in older folks rather than just looking for pharmaceuticals. (1) Young Chiropractic enthusiastically agrees! Walking is great! This a terrific message for all Easley 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 investigated. They sported an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were monitored 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 part 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 associated with a decreased risk of mortality in black and white women and men in middle-age who took 7000 steps or more a day compared with those who took less. (2) Young Chiropractic witnesses how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges Easley chiropractic patients to take walks as best they can. Any walk works!


How do most Easley back pain patients cope with chronic low back pain? Some of the things people may say or feel 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’s no right or wrong answer. Young Chiropractic sees them all! Young Chiropractic is by everyone’s side. We meet each back pain patient – old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We build a treatment plan together. The researchers who came up with the above basic 5 categories of how patients manage chronic low back pain recognized how pain impacts life. (3) So does Young Chiropractic. Consulting our Easley chiropractic office is a positive step toward perseverance in managing pain and enjoying life!
