"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How is that for a
title to a paper?! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center was even taken back a bit,
but it’s true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all
have to keep going forward! This is never more true
for middle- to older-age Manahawkin back and neck pain sufferers. Luckily,
Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is here for you.
ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS
We all start considering anti-aging
benefits at a 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 function in older folks instead of just turning to pharmaceuticals. (1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center enthusiastically agrees! Walking is great!
This a terrific message for all Manahawkin pain
BENEFICIAL DAILY EXERCISE STEPS
Take a walking stroll 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 followed. They wore
an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were monitored for a
mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were analyzed in 2020 and 2021
to see what, if any, association was made between steps-per-day
and all-mortality death risk. This study was a portion of the larger
CARDIA (Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults) study.
Steps-taken-per-day were described 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 decreased risk of mortality in black and
white women and men in middle-age who walked 7000 steps or more a
day compared with those who took less. (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center sees
how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and encourages
Manahawkin chiropractic patients to walk what
they can. Any walk will do!
EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN
How do most Manahawkin back pain patients cope
with chronic low back pain? Some of the things people may say or
feel 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 is no proper answer. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center sees them all! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is here to help. We meet each back pain sufferer
– 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 patients manage
chronic low back pain acknowledged how pain influences
life. (3) So does Manahawkin Chiropractic Center. Visiting our
Manahawkin chiropractic office is a good step toward perseverance in managing pain and enjoying life!
