10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all that time? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Exercise doesn’t always come in at number one on most people’s lists of favorite things to do with their time. It’s recommended that we all exercise at least 150 minutes a week. (6) That’s only
- 2 and a half hours a week.
- 5 sessions of 30 minutes a week.
- 10 sessions of 15 minutes a week.

Time goes by so quickly for all of us, including time for your Groton chiropractic physician at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office. Your Groton chiropractic physician at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office encourages Groton chiropractic patients to keep up their exercise routines even when they are feeling better and their back pain is better.

Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more crucial for Groton back pain sufferers particularly for Groton post-back surgery patients who still experience back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a notable reduction in pain and reoperation rate reports a new study of post-surgery back pain patients. In this study the mean age was 57 years of age. 80% of them had degenerative diagnoses. 63% had gone through a multilevel back surgery. Only 35% of them met the greater than 1400 kcal per week exercise expenditure and left them open to a second surgery (named a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the more than 150 minutes a week of exercise leaving them open to degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain. (6) 150 minutes a week does not sound like much anymore, does it? Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office knows our Groton chiropractic patients can find 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Groton treatment plan of chiropractic care.
