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

Everybody needs to exercise. Everyone needs to move. Physical activity is for each and every one of us. Is mountain climbing or marathon running necessary? Nope! Walking is superb. Muscle strengthening is just right. Gardening when the season is right is amazing. No gyms are even necessary for the physical activity that will keep you feeling good. If a knee or back injury occurs – and they happen to the best of us! – your Paramus chiropractor at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is here to return you to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and knee distraction for the familiar matter of knee pain!

EXERCISE IN ANY WEATHER

A survey conducted in Finland in 2017 traced 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 perform 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?

OLYMPIC EXERCISE

Winter and summer, Olympians move! They are very much like us though their training may be a bit more on the intense side. Elite athletes like the Olympians cope with pain and depression and keep going. A survey of Olympians from the 1948 to 2018 games revealed that 32.4% report pain today, and 35.9% report current functional limitations due to their Olympics’ days. Knee (20.6% lasting 120 days median) 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.
