You & Olympians: Have Pain, Find Relief, Return to Exercise Year-Round

Everyone needs to exercise. Everybody needs to move. Physical activity is for each and every one of us. Is mountain climbing or marathon running necessary? Not at all! Walking is superb. Muscle strengthening is superb. Gardening when the season is right is wonderful. No gyms are even necessary for the physical activity that will make you feel good. If a knee or back injury occurs – and they do to the best of us! – your Toronto chiropractor at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is here to get you back to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and knee distraction for the familiar matter of knee pain!

EXERCISE IN ANY SEASON

A study conducted in Finland in 2017 followed the physical activity participation of 18-64 year olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers discovered that the 18-64 year olds met 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 interests people performed throughout that time? Cleaning/maintenance work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they perform most consistently all 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 incorporate those to encourage the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is confident our Toronto chiropractic patients and their families can find exercises to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can get us moving!

OLYMPIC EXERCISE

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% report 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.
