Everyone needs to exercise. Everyone
outght to move. Physical activity is for all
of us. Is 5K running or rappelling up a cliff necessary? Nope! Walking is superb.
Muscle strengthening is just right. Gardening when the season is suitable
is wonderful. No gyms are even required for the physical
activity that will keep you feeling good. If a knee or back
injury occurs – and they do to the best of us! –
your Williamson chiropractor at Apple Country Chiropractic is here to get you back to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and
knee distraction for the common matter of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY SEASON
A study conducted in Finland in 2017
traced the physical activity participation of 18-64 year
olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers found 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 interests people performed throughout that time? Cleaning/maintenance
work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they perform
most consistently all year irrespective 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 particular conditioning activities people will do.
Proposals for physical activity recommendations must incorporate
those to inspire the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Apple Country Chiropractic is confident our Williamson chiropractic patients and
their families can discover exercises

Winter and summer, Olympians move! They’re really like us though their training may be a bit more on the
intense side. Elite athletes like the Olympians deal with
pain and depression and keep going. A study of Olympians
from the 1948 to 2018 games revealed that 32.4% report
current pain, and 35.9% have functional limitations they connect to their Olympics’ days.
Knee (20.6% lasting for a median of 120 days) and lumbar
spine (13.1% lasting 100 days) were the top two injuries Olympians
experienced in their training days. Depression was reported
by 6.6% of them. (2) Apple Country Chiropractic shares these Olympians’
stats with our Williamson chiropractic patients letting
them know they’re not alone in their pain struggles.
