Everyone ought to exercise. Everybody
outght to move. Physical activity is for all
of us. Is mountain climbing or marathon
running 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 make you feel good. If a knee or back
injury occurs – and they do to the best of us! –
your San Jose chiropractor at Chiropractic Solutions is ready to get you back to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and
knee distraction for the familiar issue of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY WEATHER
A survey conducted in Finland in 2017
traced the physical activity participation of 18-64 year
olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers found that the 18-64 year
olds achieved 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 that time? Cleaning/maintenance
work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they perform
most consistently throughout the 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.
Proposals for physical activity recommendations must incorporate
those to inspire the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Chiropractic Solutions is confident our San Jose chiropractic patients and
their families can agree physical activities
to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can get us moving!
Winter and summer, Olympians move! They are very
much 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 revealed that 32.4% report
current pain, and 35.9% have functional limitations they connect to their Olympics’ days.
Knee (20.6% lasting for a median of 120 days) and lumbar
spine (13.1% lasting 100 days) were the top two injuries Olympians
suffered in their training days. Depression was recounted
by 6.6% of them. (2) Chiropractic Solutions shares these Olympians’
stats with our San Jose chiropractic patients letting
them know they’re not alone in their pain struggles.
