Everybody needs to exercise. Everybody
outght to move. Physical activity is for each and every one
of us. Is 5K running or rappelling up a cliff necessary? Not at all! Walking is terrific.
Muscle strengthening is superb. Gardening when the season is right
is amazing. No gyms are even required for the physical
activity that will keep you feeling good. If a knee or back
injury happens – and they do to the best of us! –
your Malverne chiropractor at Malverne Health & Wellness is here to get you back to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and
knee distraction for the common issue of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY SEASON
A study conducted 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 met 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 do
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 finally came to the conclusion
that there are certain conditioning activities people will do.
Suggestions for physical activity recommendations must incorporate
those to encourage the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Malverne Health & Wellness is confident our Malverne chiropractic patients and
their families can find physical activities
to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can inspire
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 deal with
pain and depression and keep moving. A survey of Olympians
from the 1948 to 2018 games revealed that 32.4% describe
current pain, and 35.9% have functional limitations they connect 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
experienced in their training days. Depression was recounted
by 6.6% of them. (2) Malverne Health & Wellness presents these Olympians’
stats with our Malverne chiropractic patients to let
them know thery are not alone in their pain struggles.
