You & Olympians: Have Pain, Find Relief, Return to Exercise Year-Round

Everyone 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 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 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. Proposals 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 activity!

OLYMPIC EXERCISE

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.
