Everyone ought to exercise. Everyone
outght to move. Physical activity is for all
of us. Is 5K running or rappelling up a cliff necessary? Not at all! Walking is terrific.
Muscle strengthening is just right. Gardening when the season is right
is wonderful. No gyms are even required for the physical
activity that will keep you feeling good. If a knee or back
injury occurs – and they happen to the best of us! –
your Pensacola chiropractor at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is here to return
you to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and
knee distraction for the common matter of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY SEASON
A survey done in Finland in 2017
followed 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 did throughout the year? Cleaning/maintenance
work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they do
most consistently all year irrespective of
age/gender/season? Muscle-strengthening exercises and workout. Swimming,
skiing, gardening, jogging, and stair climbing were more age/gender/season
dependent. The researchers finally came to the conclusion
that there are particular conditioning activities people will do.
Suggestions for physical activity recommendations must use
those to encourage the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center is confident our Pensacola chiropractic patients and
their families can agree exercises

Winter and summer, Olympians move! They’re really like us though their training may be a bit more on the
intense side. 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
pain today, and 35.9% report current functional limitations
due to their Olympics’ days.
Knee (20.6% lasting for a median of 120 days) and lumbar
spine (13.1% lasting 100 days) were the top two injuries Olympians
suffered in their training days. Depression was reported
by 6.6% of them. (2) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center shares these Olympians’
stats with our Pensacola chiropractic patients to let
them know they’re not alone in their pain struggles.
