Sandy Springs Exercise Helps Cope with Pain and Aging

"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." Now, there is a title to a research 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 sufferers!

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!
