10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all those minutes? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Exercise doesn’t always come in at number one on most people’s lists of favorite things to do with their time. Researchers recommend that all of us exercise at least 150 minutes a week. (6) That’s only
- 2 and a half hours a week.
- 5 sessions of 30 minutes a week.

Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more important for Plainville back pain sufferers especially for Plainville post-back surgery patients who still have back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a notable decrease in pain and reoperation rate states a new study of post-surgery back pain patients. In this study the mean age was 57 years of age. 80% of them had degenerative diagnoses. 63% had gone through a multilevel back surgery. Only 35% of them met the greater than 1400 kcal per week exercise expenditure and left them open to a second surgery (named a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the more than 150 minutes a week of exercise opening them to the risk of degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain. (6) 150 minutes a week does not sound like much anymore, does it? Layden Chiropractic knows our Plainville chiropractic patients can schedule 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Plainville treatment plan of chiropractic care.
