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

Everybody ought to exercise. Everyone outght to move. Physical activity is for each and every one of us. Is mountain climbing or marathon running required? Not at all! Walking is terrific. Muscle strengthening is superb. Gardening when the season is right is wonderful. No gyms are even necessary for the physical activity that will make you feel good. If a knee or back injury occurs – and they do to the best of us! – your Lynchburg chiropractor at Palmer 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 SEASON

A survey 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 activities people took part in throughout that time? Cleaning/maintenance work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they do 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 finally concluded that there are particular conditioning activities people will do. Proposals for physical activity recommendations must use those to encourage the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Palmer Chiropractic Center is confident our Lynchburg chiropractic patients and their families can find physical activities to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can inspire activity!

OLYMPIC EXERCISE

Winter and summer, Olympians move! They are really like us though their training may be a bit more on the intense side. 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 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% continuing for 100 days) were the top two injuries Olympians experienced in their training days. Depression was reported by 6.6% of them.
