10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all that time? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Exercise doesn’t always appear in at number one on most people’s lists of favorite things to do with their time. It’s recommended that all of us put in at least 150 minutes of exercise a week. (6) That’s only
- 2 and a half hours a week.
- 5 sessions of 30 minutes a week.
- 10 sessions of 15 minutes a week.
It is not that much, but we need to schedule it into our busy lives, don’t we? Even your Two Rivers chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so fast for everyone, including time for your Two Rivers chiropractic physician at Lakeshore Chiropractic. Your Two Rivers chiropractic physician at Lakeshore Chiropractic encourages Two Rivers chiropractic patients to continue doing their exercise routines even when their Two Rivers back pain is not so bad.
Benefits of Exercise
People sleep better, are happier and less depressed when they exercise. (1,2) Two Rivers chiropractic patients benefit like this, too! Hearts and minds are healthier when their owners exercise. (3,4) Just take a walk down your Two Rivers street, and see how much clearer you think and better you feel with your heart pumping. Exercise slows memory loss. (4) Exercise reduces depressive symptoms. (2) Blood pressure drops. (5) Life span may even be increased due to heart workouts with aerobic exercise. (3) Lakeshore Chiropractic sees lots of positives from all of these!
Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more important for Two Rivers back pain sufferers especially for Two Rivers post-back surgery patients who still experience back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a significant decrease 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 (named a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the more 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? Lakeshore Chiropractic knows our Two Rivers chiropractic patients can schedule 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Two Rivers treatment plan of chiropractic care.
