Everybody needs to exercise. Everyone
needs to move. Physical activity is for each and every one
of us. Is 5K running or rappelling up a cliff 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? Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is confident our Paramus chiropractic patients and
their families can find exercises
to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can get us moving!
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. (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center presents these Olympians’
stats with our Paramus chiropractic patients to let
them know thery are not alone in their pain struggles.
