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 ultimately 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
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.
