You & Olympians: Have Pain, Find Relief, Return to Exercise Year-Round

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!

OLYMPIC EXERCISE

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.
