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

Everybody needs to exercise. Everyone outght to move. Physical activity is for all of us. Is mountain climbing or marathon running required? Not at all! Walking is superb. Muscle strengthening is just right. Gardening when the season is right is amazing. 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 Ashburn chiropractor at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is ready to return you to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and knee distraction for the common issue of knee pain!

EXERCISE IN ANY WEATHER

A survey done 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 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 that time? Cleaning/maintenance work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they perform most consistently throughout the 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 finally came to the conclusion that there are certain conditioning activities people will do. Suggestions for physical activity recommendations must incorporate those to encourage the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is confident our Ashburn chiropractic patients and their families can agree physical activities to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can get us moving!

OLYMPIC EXERCISE

Winter and summer, Olympians move! They’re 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 moving. A survey of Olympians from the 1948 to 2018 games revealed that 32.4% report pain today, 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) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn presents these Olympians’ stats with our Ashburn chiropractic patients to let them know thery are not alone in their pain struggles.
