Everybody ought to exercise. Everybody
needs to move. Physical activity is for all
of us. Is 5K running or rappelling up a cliff required? Nope! Walking is terrific.
Muscle strengthening is just right. 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 occurs – and they happen to the best of us! –
your Manahawkin chiropractor at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is ready to return
you to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and
knee distraction for the common matter of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY WEATHER
A study done in Finland in 2017
followed the physical activity participation of 18-64 year
olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers found 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 interests people performed throughout the year? Cleaning/maintenance
work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they do
most consistently all year irrespective of
age/gender/season? Muscle-strengthening exercises and workout. Swimming,
skiing, gardening, jogging, and stair climbing were more age/gender/season
dependent. The researchers finally came to the conclusion
that there are particular conditioning activities people will do.
Suggestions for physical activity recommendations must use
those to encourage the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is confident our Manahawkin chiropractic patients and
their families can discover physical activities
to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can get us moving!
Winter and summer, Olympians move! They are very
much like us though their training may be a bit more on the
intense side. Elite athletes like the Olympians deal with
pain and depression and keep moving. A survey of Olympians
from the 1948 to 2018 games found that 32.4% describe
current pain, and 35.9% report current functional limitations
due to their Olympics’ days.
Knee (20.6% lasting 120 days median) and lumbar
spine (13.1% lasting 100 days) were the top two injuries Olympians
suffered in their training days. Depression was reported
by 6.6% of them. (2) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center presents these Olympians’
stats with our Manahawkin chiropractic patients letting
them know they’re not alone in their pain struggles.
