"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How’s that for a
title to a paper?! Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center was even taken back a bit,
but it is true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all
have to keep moving forward! This is so true
for middle- to older-age Paramus back and neck pain sufferers. Luckily,
Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is here to help.
ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS
We all start considering anti-aging
benefits at a certain age! One group of researchers wrote
that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and recommended more research to acquire knowledge of just how molecular
mediators of exercise benefits function in older folks rather
than just turning to pharmaceuticals. (1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center wholeheartedly agrees! Walking is amazing!
This a terrific message for all Paramus pain
BENEFICIAL DAILY EXERCISE STEPS
Walk each day with a goal of
7000 steps. Why? Research. 2,110 black and white men and women and their
steps-per-day counts were studied. They sported
an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were monitored for a
mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were analyzed in 2020 and 2021
to see what, if any, association was made between steps-per-day
and all-mortality death risk. This study was a portion of the larger
CARDIA (Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults) study.
Steps-taken-per-day were defined as “low” (less than 7000),
“moderate” (7000-9999) and “high” (more than 10,000). Stepping intensity –
stepping rate – played a role, too. Moderate/high step rate was linked to a decreased risk of mortality in black and
white women and men in middle-age who took 7000 steps or more a
day compared with those who took less. (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center witnesses
how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges
Paramus chiropractic patients to walk what
they can. Any walk works!
EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN
How do most Paramus back pain patients cope
with chronic low back pain? Some of the things people may express are these:
- I feel helpless because nothing works.
- I feel down and depressed.
- I distantly wish for an end to it.
- I accept the reality of my pain.
- The pain stays, I keep going.
What about you? There is no proper answer. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center sees them all! Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is by
everyone’s side. We meet each back pain sufferer
– old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We create a
treatment plan together. The researchers who formulated the
above basic 5 categories of how patients deal with
chronic low back pain acknowledged how pain impacts
life. (3) So does Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center. Visiting our
Paramus chiropractic office is a positive step toward resolution
to managing pain and enjoying life!
