10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all that time? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Is exercise number one on your list?! It is recommended that all of us exercise at least 150 minutes 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.
That doesn’t seem like much, but we need to schedule it into our busy lives, don’t we? Even your Plymouth chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so quickly for all of us, including time for your Plymouth chiropractic physician at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology. Your Plymouth chiropractic physician at Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology encourages Plymouth chiropractic patients to keep up their exercise routines even when they are feeling better and their back pain is better.
Benefits of Exercise
Exercise allows people to be happier, less depressed and sleep better. (1,2) Plymouth chiropractic patients do, too! Hearts and minds are healthier when their owners exercise. (3,4) Just take a walk down your Plymouth street, and see how much clearer you think and healthier you feel as your heart pumps more. Exercise slows memory loss. (4) Exercise decreases depressive symptoms. (2) Blood pressure drops. (5) Life span may even expand due to heart workouts with aerobic exercise. (3) What do you think of all these possibilities? Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology encourages you to see the positives!
Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more significant for Plymouth back pain sufferers particularly for Plymouth post-back surgery patients who still experience back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a remarkable decrease in pain and reoperation rate states a new study of post-surgery back pain patients. In this study the mean age was 57 years of age. 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 open 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 opening them to the risk of degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain. (6) 150 minutes a week doesn’t sound like much anymore, does it? Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology knows our Plymouth chiropractic patients can arrange 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Plymouth treatment plan of chiropractic care.
