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 ultimately 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!
Winter and summer, Olympians move! They’re very
much like us though their training may be a bit more intense. 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.
