Everybody ought to exercise. Everyone 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 suitable is wonderful. No gyms are even necessary 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 Easley chiropractor at Young Chiropractic is here to get you back to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and knee distraction for the common matter of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY WEATHER
A survey done in Finland in 2017 tracked 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 took part in throughout the year? Cleaning/maintenance work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they perform most consistently all 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 ultimately came to the conclusion that there are particular conditioning activities people will do. Proposals for physical activity recommendations must incorporate those to encourage the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Young Chiropractic is confident our Easley chiropractic patients and their families can find exercises to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can inspire activity!
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 deal with pain and depression and keep moving. A study of Olympians from the 1948 to 2018 games revealed that 32.4% report current pain, and 35.9% have functional limitations they connect to their Olympics’ days. Knee (20.6% lasting for a median of 120 days) and lumbar spine (13.1% lasting 100 days) were the top two injuries Olympians suffered in their training days. Depression was reported by 6.6% of them. (2) Young Chiropractic shares these Olympians’ stats with our Easley chiropractic patients to let them know they’re not alone in their pain struggles.
