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 usually come in at number one on most people’s lists of favorite things to do with their time. It’s recommended that all of us exercise at least 150 minutes a week. (6) That’s just
- 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, do we not? Even your Montreal chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so quickly for everyone, including time for your Montreal chiropractic physician at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic. Your Montreal chiropractic physician at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic encourages Montreal chiropractic patients to continue doing their exercise routines even when their Montreal back pain is not so bad.

Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more significant for Montreal back pain sufferers particularly for Montreal 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 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 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 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? Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows our Montreal chiropractic patients can schedule 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Montreal treatment plan of chiropractic care.
