Everybody needs to exercise. Everybody
outght to move. Physical activity is for all
of us. Is mountain climbing or marathon
running necessary? Not at all! Walking is terrific.
Muscle strengthening is just right. Gardening when the season is suitable
is amazing. No gyms are even necessary for the physical
activity that will make you feel good. If a knee or back
injury occurs – and they happen to the best of us! –
your Largo chiropractor at Hollstrom & Associates Inc is here to get you back to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and
knee distraction for the common matter of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY WEATHER
A study done in Finland in 2017
followed the physical activity participation of 18-64 year
olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers found that the 18-64 year
olds achieved 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 activities people performed throughout the year? Cleaning/maintenance
work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they do
most consistently throughout the year irrespective of
age/gender/season? Muscle-strengthening exercises and workout. Swimming,
skiing, gardening, jogging, and stair climbing were more age/gender/season
dependent. The researchers ultimately concluded
that there are certain conditioning activities people will do.
Proposals for physical activity recommendations must use
those to inspire the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Hollstrom & Associates Inc is confident our Largo chiropractic patients and
their families can agree exercises
to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can inspire
Winter and summer, Olympians move! They’re very
much like us though their training may be a bit more on the
intense side. Elite athletes like the Olympians deal with
pain and depression and keep moving. A study of Olympians
from the 1948 to 2018 games found that 32.4% describe
pain today, and 35.9% have functional limitations they connect 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
suffered in their training days. Depression was reported
by 6.6% of them. (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc shares these Olympians’
stats with our Largo chiropractic patients letting
them know they’re not alone in their pain struggles.
