Fernandina Beach Exercise Helps Cope with Pain and Aging

"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.


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 recommended 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 sufferers!


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!


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!
