Everybody needs to exercise. Everybody
outght to move. Physical activity is for each and every one
of us. Is mountain climbing or marathon
running required? Nope! Walking is terrific.
Muscle strengthening is just right. Gardening when the season is suitable
is amazing. No gyms are even required for the physical
activity that will make you feel good. If a knee or back
injury happens – and they do to the best of us! –
your New Roads chiropractor at New Roads Chiropractic Center is ready to return
you 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
tracked 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 interests people took part
in throughout the year? Cleaning/maintenance
work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they perform
most consistently throughout the 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 concluded
that there are certain conditioning activities people will do.
Suggestions for physical activity recommendations must use
those to inspire the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? New Roads Chiropractic Center is confident our New Roads chiropractic patients and
their families can discover exercises

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 cope with
pain and depression and keep moving. A study of Olympians
from the 1948 to 2018 games revealed that 32.4% report
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% continuing for 100 days) were the top two injuries Olympians
experienced in their training days. Depression was reported
by 6.6% of them. (2) New Roads Chiropractic Center presents these Olympians’
stats with our New Roads chiropractic patients letting
them know they’re not alone in their pain struggles.
