"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How’s that for a
title to a paper?! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre was even startled a bit,
but it is true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all
have to keep moving forward! This is so true
for middle- to older-age Toronto back and neck pain sufferers. Fortunately,
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is here to help.
ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS
We all start looking for anti-aging
benefits at a certain age! One set of researchers stated
that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and called
for more research to acquire knowledge of just how molecular
mediators of exercise benefits function in older folks rather
than just looking for pharmaceuticals. (1) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre wholeheartedly agrees! Walking is amazing!
This a terrific message for all Toronto pain
BENEFICIAL DAILY EXERCISE STEPS
Take a walking stroll 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 monitored 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 part of the larger
CARDIA (Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults) study.
Steps-taken-per-day were defined 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 linked to a reduced 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 took less. (2) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre witnesses
how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges
Toronto chiropractic patients to walk what
they can. Any walk works!
EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN
How do most Toronto back pain patients deal
with chronic low back pain? Some of the things people may say or
feel 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 right or
wrong answer. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre sees them all! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is here to help. We meet each back pain patient
– old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We build a
treatment plan together. The researchers who formulated the
above basic 5 categories of how patients deal with
chronic low back pain acknowledged how pain impacts
life. (3) So does Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. Consulting our
Toronto chiropractic office is a good step toward perseverance in managing pain and enjoying life!
