"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How’s that for a
title to a paper?! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic was even startled a bit,
but it’s true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all
have to keep moving forward! This is so true
for middle- to older-age Fernandina Beach back and neck pain sufferers. Fortunately,
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is here to help.
ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS
We all start considering anti-aging
benefits at that certain age! One group of researchers stated
that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and called
for more research to gain knowledge of just how molecular
mediators of exercise benefits work in older folks rather
than just turning to pharmaceuticals. (1) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic enthusiastically agrees! Walking is amazing!
This a terrific message for all Fernandina Beach pain
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 investigated. They wore
an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were followed for a
mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were examined in 2020 and 2021
to see what, if any, association was made 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) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic sees
how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges
Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients to take walks as best
they can. Any walk will do!
EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN
How do most Fernandina Beach back pain patients deal
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’s no right or
wrong answer. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic sees them all! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is present 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 sufferers manage
chronic low back pain acknowledged how pain impacts
life. (3) So does Amelia Chiropractic Clinic. Consulting our
Fernandina Beach chiropractic office is a good step toward perseverance in managing pain and enjoying life!
