New Roads Exercise Helps Cope with Pain and Aging

"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." Now, there is a title to a research paper! New Roads Chiropractic Center was even taken back a bit, but it’s true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all have to keep moving forward! This is never more real for middle- to older-age New Roads back and neck pain sufferers. Luckily, New Roads Chiropractic Center is here to help.


We all start looking for anti-aging benefits at a certain age! One group of researchers stated that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and recommended more research to acquire knowledge of just how molecular mediators of exercise benefits work in older folks instead of just turning to pharmaceuticals. (1) New Roads Chiropractic Center wholeheartedly agrees! Walking is amazing! This an important message for all New Roads pain sufferers!


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 investigated. They sported an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were monitored for a mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were analyzed 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 described 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 linked to a reduced risk of mortality in black and white women and men in middle-age who walked 7000 steps or more a day compared with those who walked less. (2) New Roads Chiropractic Center sees how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges New Roads chiropractic patients to take walks as best they can. Any walk works!


How do most New Roads back pain patients deal with chronic low back pain? Some of the things people may express 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. New Roads Chiropractic Center sees them all! New Roads Chiropractic Center is by everyone’s side. We meet each back pain patient – old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We create a treatment plan together. The researchers who formulated the above basic 5 categories of how sufferers manage chronic low back pain acknowledged how pain impacts life. (3) So does New Roads Chiropractic Center.
