10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all that time? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Is exercise number one on your list?! It is recommended that all of us exercise at least 150 minutes a week. (6) That’s only
- 2 and a half hours a week.
- 5 sessions of 30 minutes a week.
- 10 sessions of 15 minutes a week.
That doesn’t seem like much, but we need to schedule it into our busy lives, do we not? Even your Malverne chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so fast for all of us, including time for your Malverne chiropractic physician at Malverne Health & Wellness. Your Malverne chiropractic physician at Malverne Health & Wellness encourages Malverne chiropractic patients to keep up their exercise routines even when they are feeling better and their back pain is better.
Benefits of Exercise
Exercise allows people to be happier, less depressed and sleep better. (1,2) Malverne chiropractic patients do, too! Hearts and minds are healthier when their owners exercise. (3,4) Just take a walk down your Malverne street, and see how much clearer you think and healthier you feel with your heart pumping. Exercise slows memory loss. (4) Exercise reduces depressive symptoms. (2) Blood pressure drops. (5) Life span may even increase due to heart workouts with aerobic exercise. (3) Malverne Health & Wellness sees lots of positives from all of these!
Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more important for Malverne back pain sufferers especially for Malverne post-back surgery patients who still have back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a remarkable decrease in pain and reoperation rate reports a new study of post-surgery back pain patients. In this study the mean age was 57 years old. 80% of them had degenerative diagnoses. 63% had gone through a multilevel back surgery. Only 35% of them met the greater than 1400 kcal a week exercise expenditure and left them open to a second surgery (named a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the greater than 150 minutes a week of exercise opening them to the risk of degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain. (6) 150 minutes a week does not sound like much anymore, does it? Malverne Health & Wellness knows our Malverne chiropractic patients can arrange 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Malverne treatment plan of chiropractic care.
