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

Everyone ought to exercise. Everyone outght to move. Physical activity is for all of us. Is 5K running or rappelling up a cliff required? Not at all! Walking is terrific. Muscle strengthening is just right. Gardening when the season is right is amazing. No gyms are even required for the physical activity that will keep you feeling good. If a knee or back injury occurs – and they happen to the best of us! – your Colorado Springs chiropractor at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is here to get you back to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and knee distraction for the familiar matter of knee pain!

EXERCISE IN ANY SEASON

A survey conducted in Finland in 2017 traced the physical activity participation of 18-64 year olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers discovered 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 the year? 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 certain 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? The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is confident our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients and their families can find exercises 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 intense. Elite athletes like the Olympians cope with pain and depression and keep moving. A survey of Olympians from the 1948 to 2018 games found that 32.4% report current pain, and 35.9% have functional limitations they connect 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 suffered in their training days. Depression was recounted by 6.6% of them. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR presents these Olympians’ stats with our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients letting them know thery are not alone in their pain struggles.
