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

Everyone 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 WEATHER

A survey done 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 to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can inspire activity!

OLYMPIC EXERCISE

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 survey 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 to let them know they’re not alone in their pain struggles.
