San Jose Exercise Helps Cope with Pain and Aging

"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." Now, there’s a title to a research paper! Chiropractic Solutions was even taken back a bit, but it’s true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all have to keep going forward! This is never more real for middle- to older-age San Jose back and neck pain sufferers. Luckily, Chiropractic Solutions is here to help.

ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS

We all start considering anti-aging benefits at a certain age! One group of researchers stated that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and recommended more research to gain knowledge of just how molecular mediators of exercise benefits function in older folks instead of just looking for pharmaceuticals. (1) Chiropractic Solutions enthusiastically agrees! Walking is amazing! This an important message for all San Jose 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 monitored for a mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were analyzed in 2020 and 2021 to measure what, if any, association was found 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 took 7000 steps or more a day compared with those who walked less. (2) Chiropractic Solutions witnesses how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and encourages San Jose chiropractic patients to walk what they can. Any walk works!

EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN

How do most San Jose back pain patients cope with chronic low back pain? Some of the things people may express 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 is no right or wrong answer. Chiropractic Solutions sees them all! Chiropractic Solutions is here to help. We meet each back pain patient – old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We build a treatment plan together. The researchers who came up with the above basic 5 categories of how patients manage chronic low back pain recognized how pain impacts life. (3) So does Chiropractic Solutions. Visiting our San Jose chiropractic office is a positive step toward resolution to managing pain and enjoying life!
