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

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 here 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!

OLYMPIC EXERCISE

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.
