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 done 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
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. (2) Satterwhite Chiropractic shares these Olympians’
stats with our Oxford chiropractic patients to let
them know thery are not alone in their pain struggles.
