"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How’s that for a
title to a paper?! Apple Country Chiropractic was even taken back a bit,
but it is true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all
have to keep going forward! This is so real
for middle- to older-age Williamson back and neck pain sufferers. Luckily,
Apple Country Chiropractic is here to help.
ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS
We all start looking for anti-aging
benefits at that certain age! One set of researchers wrote
that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and called
for more research to acquire knowledge of just how molecular
mediators of exercise benefits function in older folks rather
than just looking for pharmaceuticals. (1) Apple Country Chiropractic wholeheartedly agrees! Walking is great!
This a terrific message for all Williamson pain
BENEFICIAL DAILY EXERCISE STEPS
Take a walking stroll 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 sported
an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were followed for a
mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were analyzed in 2020 and 2021
to see 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 defined 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 associated
with 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) Apple Country Chiropractic witnesses
how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges
Williamson chiropractic patients to take walks as best
they can. Any walk works!
EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN
How do most Williamson 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. Apple Country Chiropractic sees them all! Apple Country Chiropractic is present to help. We meet each back pain patient
– old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We build a
treatment plan together. The researchers who formulated the
above basic 5 categories of how patients manage
chronic low back pain recognized how pain impacts
life. (3) So does Apple Country Chiropractic. Visiting our
Williamson chiropractic office is a positive step toward perseverance in managing pain and enjoying life!
