Everyone needs to exercise. Everybody
needs to move. Physical activity is for each and every one
of us. Is 5K running or rappelling up a cliff necessary? Nope! Walking is terrific.
Muscle strengthening is superb. Gardening when the season is suitable
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 Plainville chiropractor at Layden Chiropractic is ready to return
you to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and
knee distraction for the familiar issue of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY WEATHER
A survey conducted in Finland in 2017
tracked the physical activity participation of 18-64 year
olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers found that the 18-64 year
olds achieved 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 took part
in throughout that time? Cleaning/maintenance
work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they perform
most consistently all year regardless of
age/gender/season? Muscle-strengthening exercises and workout. Swimming,
skiing, gardening, jogging, and stair climbing were more age/gender/season
dependent. The researchers ultimately came to the conclusion
that there are particular conditioning activities people will do.
Suggestions for physical activity recommendations must incorporate
those to inspire the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Layden Chiropractic is confident our Plainville chiropractic patients and
their families can agree exercises
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 intense. Elite athletes like the Olympians cope with
pain and depression and keep going. A survey of Olympians
from the 1948 to 2018 games found that 32.4% report
pain today, 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
experienced in their training days. Depression was reported
by 6.6% of them. (2) Layden Chiropractic shares these Olympians’
stats with our Plainville chiropractic patients letting
them know they’re not alone in their pain struggles.
