Montreal Exercise Helps Cope with Pain and Aging

"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How’s that for a title to a paper?! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic was even startled a bit, but it’s true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all have to keep going forward! This is never more true for middle- to older-age Montreal back and neck pain sufferers. Fortunately, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is here for you.


We all start considering anti-aging benefits at that certain age! One group of researchers stated that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and recommended more research to gain knowledge of just how molecular mediators of exercise benefits function in older folks rather than just looking for pharmaceuticals. (1) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic wholeheartedly agrees! Walking is amazing! This a terrific message for all Montreal pain sufferers!


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 studied. 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 associated with a reduced risk of mortality in black and white women and men in middle-age who walked 7000 steps or more a day compared with those who took less. (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic sees how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges Montreal chiropractic patients to take walks as best they can. Any walk will do!


How do most Montreal back pain patients cope 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’s no right or wrong answer. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic sees them all! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is by everyone’s side. We meet each back pain patient – old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We create a treatment plan together. The researchers who formulated the above basic 5 categories of how patients manage chronic low back pain acknowledged how pain impacts life. (3) So does Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic. Visiting our Montreal chiropractic office is a good step toward perseverance in managing pain and enjoying life!
