You & Olympians: Have Pain, Find Relief, Return to Exercise Year-Round

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!

OLYMPIC EXERCISE

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.
