Everybody ought to exercise. Everybody
needs to move. Physical activity is for each and every one
of us. Is mountain climbing or marathon
running necessary? Not at all! Walking is superb.
Muscle strengthening is superb. Gardening when the season is decent
is amazing. No gyms are even necessary for the physical
activity that will make you feel good. If a knee or back
injury happens – and they happen to the best of us! –
your Baton Rouge chiropractor at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is here to return
you to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and
knee distraction for the familiar matter of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY WEATHER
A study conducted in Finland in 2017
followed the physical activity participation of 18-64 year
olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers discovered 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 do
most consistently all year irrespective of
age/gender/season? Muscle-strengthening exercises and workout. Swimming,
skiing, gardening, jogging, and stair climbing were more age/gender/season
dependent. The researchers finally concluded
that there are particular conditioning activities people will do.
Proposals for physical activity recommendations must use
those to inspire the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation is confident our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients and
their families can find exercises
to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can inspire
Winter and summer, Olympians move! They are really like us though their training may be a bit more intense. Elite athletes like the Olympians deal with
pain and depression and keep going. A study of Olympians
from the 1948 to 2018 games revealed that 32.4% describe
pain today, and 35.9% report current functional limitations
due to their Olympics’ days.
Knee (20.6% lasting 120 days median) and lumbar
spine (13.1% lasting 100 days) were the top two injuries Olympians
experienced in their training days. Depression was recounted
by 6.6% of them. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation shares these Olympians’
stats with our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients letting
them know thery are not alone in their pain struggles.
