"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How is that for a
title to a paper?! Pensacola Spinal Rehab 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 so real
for middle- to older-age Pensacola back and neck pain sufferers. Fortunately,
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is here to help.
ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS
We all start looking for anti-aging
benefits at that certain age! One set of researchers wrote
that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and recommended more research to gain knowledge of just how molecular
mediators of exercise benefits work in older folks rather
than just turning to pharmaceuticals. (1) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center enthusiastically agrees! Walking is great!
This a terrific message for all Pensacola pain
BENEFICIAL DAILY EXERCISE STEPS
Take a walking stroll 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 followed. They wore
an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were followed 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 a portion 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 associated
with a decreased 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 took less. (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center sees
how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges
Pensacola chiropractic patients to take walks as best
they can. Any walk will do!
EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN
How do most Pensacola back pain patients deal
with chronic low back pain? Some of the things people may say or
feel 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’s no proper answer. Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center sees them all! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is by
everyone’s side. We meet each back pain sufferer
– old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We create a
treatment plan together. The researchers who came up with the
above basic 5 categories of how patients deal with
chronic low back pain recognized how pain impacts
life. (3) So does Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center. Consulting our
Pensacola chiropractic office is a positive step toward perseverance in managing pain and enjoying life!
