Everybody needs to exercise. Everybody
needs to move. Physical activity is for each and every one
of us. Is 5K running or rappelling up a cliff necessary? Nope! Walking is terrific.
Muscle strengthening is superb. Gardening when the season is decent
is wonderful. No gyms are even necessary for the physical
activity that will keep you feeling good. If a knee or back
injury happens – and they happen to the best of us! –
your Groton chiropractor at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is ready to get you back to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and
knee distraction for the familiar issue of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY SEASON
A survey conducted in Finland in 2017
followed the physical activity participation of 18-64 year
olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers discovered that the 18-64 year
olds achieved 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 activities people performed throughout the year? Cleaning/maintenance
work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they perform
most consistently all year regardless 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 came to the conclusion
that there are particular conditioning activities people will do.
Proposals for physical activity recommendations must incorporate
those to encourage the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is confident our Groton chiropractic patients and
their families can discover exercises
to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can get us moving!
Winter and summer, Olympians move! They are very
much 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 found that 32.4% describe
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
suffered in their training days. Depression was recounted
by 6.6% of them. (2) Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office shares these Olympians’
stats with our Groton chiropractic patients to let
them know thery are not alone in their pain struggles.
