Manahawkin Exercise Helps Cope with Pain and Aging

"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.


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 sufferers!


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!


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!
