"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How’s that for a
title to a paper?! Cross Chiropractic Center was even taken back a bit,
but it’s true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all
have to keep moving forward! This is never more true
for middle- to older-age Sandy Springs back and neck pain sufferers. Fortunately,
Cross Chiropractic Center is here to help.
ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS
We all start considering anti-aging
benefits at that certain age! One group of researchers wrote
that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and called
for more research to gain knowledge of just how molecular
mediators of exercise benefits work in older folks instead of just looking for pharmaceuticals. (1) Cross Chiropractic Center enthusiastically agrees! Walking is great!
This a terrific message for all Sandy Springs pain
BENEFICIAL DAILY EXERCISE STEPS
Walk 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 studied. They sported
an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were followed for a
mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were analyzed 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 reduced risk of mortality in black and
white women and men in middle-age who walked 7000 steps or more a
day compared with those who took less. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center sees
how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges
Sandy Springs chiropractic patients to walk what
they can. Any walk will do!
EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN
How do most Sandy Springs back pain patients deal
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. Cross Chiropractic Center sees them all! Cross Chiropractic Center is here to help. We meet each back pain sufferer
– old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We build a
treatment plan together. The researchers who formulated the
above basic 5 categories of how sufferers manage
chronic low back pain recognized how pain impacts
life. (3) So does Cross Chiropractic Center. Coming to our
Sandy Springs chiropractic office is a good step toward resolution
to managing pain and enjoying life!
