"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How’s that for a
title to a paper?! Satterwhite Chiropractic was even startled a bit,
but it’s true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all
have to keep going forward! This is never more true
for middle- to older-age Oxford back and neck pain sufferers. Luckily,
Satterwhite Chiropractic is here to help.
ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS
We all start considering anti-aging
benefits at a certain age! One set of researchers stated
that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and recommended more research to gather knowledge of just how molecular
mediators of exercise benefits function in older folks instead of just turning to pharmaceuticals. (1) Satterwhite Chiropractic enthusiastically agrees! Walking is amazing!
This a terrific message for all Oxford pain
BENEFICIAL DAILY EXERCISE STEPS
Walk each day with a goal of
7000 steps. Why? Research. 2,110 black and white men and women and their
steps-per-day counts were studied. They wore
an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were monitored for a
mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were examined in 2020 and 2021
to measure what, if any, association was found between steps-per-day
and all-mortality death risk. This study was part of the larger
CARDIA (Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults) study.
Steps-taken-per-day were described as “low” (less than 7000),
“moderate” (7000-9999) and “high” (more than 10,000). Stepping intensity –
stepping rate – played a role, too. Moderate/high step rate was linked to a reduced risk of mortality in black and
white women and men in middle-age who took 7000 steps or more a
day compared with those who walked less. (2) Satterwhite Chiropractic witnesses
how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges
Oxford chiropractic patients to take walks as best
they can. Any walk works!
EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN
How do most Oxford back pain patients deal
with chronic low back pain? Some of the things people may say or
feel are these:
- I feel helpless because nothing works.
- I feel down and depressed.
- I distantly wish for an end to it.
- I accept the reality of my pain.
- The pain stays, I keep going.
What about you? There’s no right or
wrong answer. Satterwhite Chiropractic sees them all! Satterwhite Chiropractic is present to help. We meet each back pain sufferer
– old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We build a
treatment plan together. The researchers who came up with the
above basic 5 categories of how sufferers manage
chronic low back pain recognized how pain influences
life. (3) So does Satterwhite Chiropractic. Coming to our
