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

Everyone needs to exercise. Everyone needs to move. Physical activity is for all of us. Is 5K running or rappelling up a cliff required? Nope! 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 happen to the best of us! – your Oxford chiropractor at Satterwhite Chiropractic is ready to return you 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 achieved 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 did 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 ultimately concluded that there are certain conditioning activities people will do. Proposals for physical activity recommendations must use those to inspire the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Satterwhite Chiropractic is confident our Oxford chiropractic patients and their families can discover 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’re really like us though their training may be a bit more intense. Elite athletes like the Olympians deal with pain and depression and keep going. A study of Olympians from the 1948 to 2018 games found that 32.4% describe current pain, and 35.9% report current functional limitations due to their Olympics’ days. Knee (20.6% lasting for a median of 120 days) and lumbar spine (13.1% continuing for 100 days) were the top two injuries Olympians suffered in their training days. Depression was reported by 6.6% of them.
