Pensacola Exercise Helps Cope with Pain and Aging

"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 sufferers!

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.
