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.
Proposals 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
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. (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic shares these Olympians’
stats with our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients to let
them know they’re not alone in their pain struggles.
