Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office believes adding Groton exercise to your daily life is an advantageous behavior that ultimately enhances your life. Let’s get moving!


Culture can be supportive of physical activity…or not. Researchers studied various motivators for physical activity and exercise. Since being physically active is a result of self-determination, they detailed the combination of autonomy, competence, ego, task, and relatedness of these in the motivation to exercise. American subjects were more autonomous, task oriented, and physically active than Turkish subjects telling researchers and ultimately us clinicians to customize exercise to the patient and his/her influences. (1) Share with Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office what motivates you! Simple? Fast? At-home? Out of the house? Maybe some mindfulness? To boost the exercise effort, adding mindfulness appears encouraging. Researchers found though that people have misconceptions or no concept of what mindfulness is or how it is valuable to mental and overall health. A recent study examined the effectiveness of physical activity and mindfulness activities in averting mental health issues and concluded that it held promise. (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office appreciates those types of benefits!


A pill maybe?! None of us would confess to wanting a pill to be physically fit…or would we? Of course not! As the pharmacological world investigates new drugs to improve cognitive function in the aging folks, researchers have also listed nutrition, diet, probiotics, cognitive training, and physical activity, exercise, even dancing – ballroom, aerobic and Latin - as being beneficial. (3) Important motivators can be healthy lifestyle behaviors mixed with chiropractic care. Treating and easing chronic pain – related to reduced brain gray matter and impaired cognitive function - was found to restore normal brain function.

Curious researchers tackled the question of older adults’ goals, motivations, and self-determination motivators to lead a healthy lifestyle and participate in things to support that lifestyle like exercise and eating well. Factors like personality and goal-setting habits were proposed as influencers. (5) Even in kids, researchers noted that behaviors like breakfast eating, exercise, and sleep patterns affected their healthy lifestyle. Not eating breakfast in the morning – 11% of kids in one study did this – was associated with sleep duration, bedtime, and physical activity. 9.5% of kids said they had poor sleep. 24.9% did not sleep more than the suggested 9 hours. Girls were not as physically active. Bad news: Such unhealthy habits impaired children’s hand-eye coordination and attention. Positive] news: Better sleep quality improved reaction time in a visual attention exam.
