10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all that time? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Isn’t exercise number one on your list?! It is recommended that we all exercise at least 150 minutes a week. (6) That’s just
- 2 and a half hours a week.
- 5 sessions of 30 minutes a week.
- 10 sessions of 15 minutes a week.
That doesn’t seem like much, but we need to schedule it into our busy lives, do we not? Even your Largo chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so quickly for everyone, including time for your Largo chiropractic physician at Hollstrom & Associates Inc. Your Largo chiropractic physician at Hollstrom & Associates Inc encourages Largo chiropractic patients to keep up their exercise routines even when they are feeling better and their back pain is better.

Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more crucial for Largo back pain sufferers especially for Largo post-back surgery patients who still experience back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a significant reduction in pain and reoperation rate reports a new study of post-surgery back pain patients. In this study the mean age was 57 years old. 80% of them had degenerative diagnoses. 63% had gone through a multilevel back surgery. Only 35% of them met the greater than 1400 kcal per week exercise expenditure and left them vulnerable to a second surgery (called 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 doesn’t sound like much anymore, does it? Hollstrom & Associates Inc knows our Largo chiropractic patients can find 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Largo treatment plan of chiropractic care.
