Plainville Exercise Helps Cope with Pain and Aging

"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." Now, there’s a title to a research paper! Layden Chiropractic was even startled a bit, but it’s true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all have to keep moving forward! This is so true for middle- to older-age Plainville back and neck pain sufferers. Luckily, Layden Chiropractic 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 recommended more research to gather knowledge of just how molecular mediators of exercise benefits function in older folks instead of just turning to pharmaceuticals. (1) Layden Chiropractic wholeheartedly agrees! Walking is amazing! This an important message for all Plainville pain sufferers!

BENEFICIAL DAILY EXERCISE STEPS

Walk 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 investigated. They sported an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were followed for a mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were analyzed in 2020 and 2021 to measure what, if any, association was found between steps-per-day and all-mortality death risk. This study was part of the larger CARDIA (Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults) study. Steps-taken-per-day were defined 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 walked less. (2) Layden Chiropractic witnesses how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges Plainville chiropractic patients to walk what they can. Any walk works!

EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN

How do most Plainville 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. Layden Chiropractic sees them all! Layden Chiropractic is present to help. We meet each back pain sufferer – old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We create a treatment plan together. The researchers who came up with the above basic 5 categories of how patients deal with chronic low back pain acknowledged how pain impacts life. (3) So does Layden Chiropractic.
