10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all that time? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Exercise doesn’t usually come in at number one on most people’s lists of favorite things to do with their time. It is recommended that we all put in at least 150 minutes of exercise 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 does not seem like much, but we need to schedule it into our busy lives, do we not? Even your Paramus chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so quickly for all of us, including time for your Paramus chiropractic physician at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center. Your Paramus chiropractic physician at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center encourages Paramus chiropractic patients to continue doing their exercise routines even when their Paramus back pain is not so bad.

Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more significant for Paramus back pain sufferers especially for Paramus post-back surgery patients who still experience back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a significant 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 of age. 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 leaving them open to degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain. (6) 150 minutes a week does not sound like much anymore, does it? Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center knows our Paramus chiropractic patients can arrange 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Paramus treatment plan of chiropractic care.
