Everybody needs to exercise. Everybody
needs to move. Physical activity is for each and every one
of us. Is 5K running or rappelling up a cliff required? Not at all! Walking is terrific.
Muscle strengthening is just right. Gardening when the season is right
is amazing. No gyms are even necessary for the physical
activity that will keep you feeling good. If a knee or back
injury happens – and they happen to the best of us! –
your Sandy Springs chiropractor at Cross Chiropractic Center is ready 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 SEASON
A study done in Finland in 2017
traced 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 interests people took part
in throughout the year? Cleaning/maintenance
work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they perform
most consistently all 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 ultimately concluded
that there are particular conditioning activities people will do.
Suggestions for physical activity recommendations must incorporate
those to encourage the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Cross Chiropractic Center is confident our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients and
their families can find exercises
to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can get us moving!
Winter and summer, Olympians move! They’re really like us though their training may be a bit more intense. Elite athletes like the Olympians deal with
pain and depression and keep moving. A study of Olympians
from the 1948 to 2018 games found that 32.4% report
current pain, and 35.9% report current functional limitations
due to their Olympics’ days.
Knee (20.6% lasting for a median of 120 days) and lumbar
spine (13.1% continuing for 100 days) were the top two injuries Olympians
experienced in their training days. Depression was recounted
by 6.6% of them. (2) Cross Chiropractic Center presents these Olympians’
stats with our Sandy Springs chiropractic patients to let
them know thery are not alone in their pain struggles.
