"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How’s that for a
title to a paper?! Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office was even startled a bit,
but it’s true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all
have to keep moving forward! This is so true
for middle- to older-age Groton back and neck pain sufferers. Luckily,
Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is here to help.
ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS
We all start considering anti-aging
benefits at that certain age! One set of researchers wrote
that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and recommended more research to gather knowledge of just how molecular
mediators of exercise benefits work in older folks instead of just looking for pharmaceuticals. (1) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office wholeheartedly agrees! Walking is amazing!
This an important message for all Groton pain
BENEFICIAL DAILY EXERCISE STEPS
Walk 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 followed. They sported
an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were monitored for a
mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were examined in 2020 and 2021
to measure what, if any, association was made 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 decreased 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 took less. (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office witnesses
how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges
Groton chiropractic patients to walk what
they can. Any walk works!
EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN
How do most Groton 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 is no right or
wrong answer. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office sees them all! Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is present to help. We meet each back pain patient
– old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We build a
