physical activity really important? Back pain sufferers wonder,
especially those who try to avoid physical activity! May Fernandina Beach back pain sufferers are not exercisers by
nature. (Are you?) Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor meets all types
of back pain sufferers and knows all sorts of physical activity
options that may be more interesting. At Amelia Chiropractic Clinic we try
to pair the exercise routine to the chronic back pain patient
and symptomatology to optimize the results of
exercise described in research studies to be valuable
in managing, relieving, and preventing back pain.
3 HOURS OF LEISURE TIME: What do you do?
What you do in your non-work hours impacts
your back pain experience! Let us first describe
sedentary versus physically active.
Researchers in one study defined physically active folks as
those who were more active in their leisure time. They spent 3
hours of their leisure time a day being physically active. Sedentary
folks spent 3 hours or more per day of their leisure time sitting.
Physically active folks were 33% less likely to have low back pain compared
with more sedentary folks. (1) Takeaway: Be more physically active in your
off-time! Like gardening? Garden! Like walking? Walk! Like talking? Take a walk
with a friend, and talk!
ACTIVE AND SEDENTARY BACK PAIN SUFFERERS AND THEIR ACTIVITY
We’re all different! Regarding back pain, the difference comes to light even more in some
aspects. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic knows a few chronic low back
pain patients are more prone to exercising and
being physically active than others who tend to be more
sedentary. What’s the difference in these folks? Researchers
found a few things: more physically active folks (those
who perform at least 150 minutes of moderate or 75 minutes
of vigorous physical activity a week) experience lower
body mass index and higher levels of leisure time physical activity. Sedentary
folks (those who spend more than 8 hours of time in sedentary
activities per day) tend to have low
levels of activity at work. (2) Hum? We know that such patient characteristics
need to be considered when treating back pain patients and
encouraging physical activity and reducing sedentary lifestyle activity. How
can Amelia Chiropractic Clinic assist our more sedentary back pain sufferers?
these little bits of information is helpful! Your Fernandina Beach
chiropractor is right here with you. Let us know your ideas
on how we can help you!
