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

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 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 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 120 days median) 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.
