"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How is that for a
title to a paper?! Vancouver Disc Centers was even taken back a bit,
but it is true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all
have to keep going forward! This is never more real
for middle- to older-age Vancouver back and neck pain sufferers. Luckily,
Vancouver Disc Centers is here for you.
ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS
We all start considering anti-aging
benefits at that certain age! One set of researchers wrote
that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and called
for more research to gain knowledge of just how molecular
mediators of exercise benefits function in older folks instead of just looking for pharmaceuticals. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers wholeheartedly agrees! Walking is amazing!
This a terrific message for all Vancouver 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 followed. They sported
an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were followed for a
mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were analyzed in 2020 and 2021
to see what, if any, association was found 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 described 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 associated
with 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 walked less. (2) Vancouver Disc Centers witnesses
how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges
Vancouver chiropractic patients to take walks as best
they can. Any walk works!
EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN
How do most Vancouver back pain patients deal
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. Vancouver Disc Centers sees them all! Vancouver Disc Centers is by
everyone’s side. We meet each back pain patient
– old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We create a
treatment plan together. The researchers who came up with the
above basic 5 categories of how patients deal with
chronic low back pain acknowledged how pain impacts
life. (3) So does Vancouver Disc Centers. Coming to our
Vancouver chiropractic office is a good step toward resolution
to managing pain and enjoying life!
