Everybody needs to exercise. Everyone
needs to move. Physical activity is for all
of us. Is mountain climbing or marathon
running required? Not at all! Walking is terrific.
Muscle strengthening is superb. Gardening when the season is suitable
is amazing. No gyms are even necessary for the physical
activity that will make you feel good. If a knee or back
injury occurs – and they happen to the best of us! –
your Montreal chiropractor at Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is here to return
you to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and
knee distraction for the familiar matter of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY WEATHER
A survey conducted in Finland in 2017
traced 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 particular conditioning activities people will do.
Suggestions for physical activity recommendations must incorporate
those to encourage the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic is confident our Montreal chiropractic patients and
their families can discover exercises
to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can inspire
Winter and summer, Olympians move! They are really like us though their training may be a bit more intense. Elite athletes like the Olympians cope with
pain and depression and keep moving. A study of Olympians
from the 1948 to 2018 games found that 32.4% report
current pain, 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
experienced in their training days. Depression was reported
by 6.6% of them. (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic shares these Olympians’
stats with our Montreal chiropractic patients letting
them know thery are not alone in their pain struggles.
