10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all that time? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Isn’t exercise number one on your list?! It’s recommended that we all exercise at least 150 minutes a week. (6) That’s just
- 2 and a half hours a week.
- 5 sessions of 30 minutes a week.
- 10 sessions of 15 minutes a week.
It’s not that much, but we need to schedule it into our busy lives, do we not? Even your Fernandina Beach chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so quickly for everyone, including time for your Fernandina Beach chiropractic physician at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic. Your Fernandina Beach chiropractic physician at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic encourages Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients to keep up their exercise routines even when they are feeling better and their back pain is better.
Benefits of Exercise
Exercise makes people happier, less depressed and sleep better. (1,2) Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients benefit like this, too! Hearts and minds are healthier when their owners exercise. (3,4) Just take a walk down your Fernandina Beach street, and see how much clearer you think and healthier you feel with your heart pumping. Exercise reduce memory loss. (4) Exercise decreases depressive symptoms. (2) Blood pressure falls. (5) Life span may even increase due to heart workouts with aerobic exercise. (3) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic sees lots of positives from all of these!
Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more important for Fernandina Beach back pain sufferers particularly for Fernandina Beach post-back surgery patients who still have back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a significant reduction in pain and reoperation rate reports a new study of post-surgery back pain patients. In this study the mean age was 57 years old. 80% of them had degenerative diagnoses. 63% had gone through a multilevel back surgery. Only 35% of them met the greater than 1400 kcal per week exercise expenditure and left them open to a second surgery (named a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the more than 150 minutes a week of exercise leaving them open to degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain. (6) 150 minutes a week doesn’t sound like much anymore, does it? Amelia Chiropractic Clinic knows our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients can arrange 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Fernandina Beach treatment plan of chiropractic care.
