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 decent
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
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. (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center presents these Olympians’
stats with our Lynchburg chiropractic patients letting
them know thery are not alone in their pain struggles.
