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

Everybody needs to exercise. Everyone 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 terrific. 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 Fernandina Beach chiropractor at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic 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 SEASON

A survey done in Finland in 2017 tracked the physical activity participation of 18-64 year olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers discovered that the 18-64 year olds met 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 activities people did throughout the year? Cleaning/maintenance work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they do 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. Suggestions for physical activity recommendations must incorporate those to inspire the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is confident our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients and their families can agree exercises to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can inspire activity!

OLYMPIC EXERCISE

Winter and summer, Olympians move! They’re 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 found that 32.4% report current pain, and 35.9% have functional limitations they connect to their Olympics’ days. Knee (20.6% lasting 120 days median) and lumbar spine (13.1% continuing for 100 days) were the top two injuries Olympians suffered in their training days. Depression was reported by 6.6% of them.
