Is exercise really all that? Back pain sufferers wonder,
especially those who try to avoid physical activity! May Montreal back pain sufferers are not exercisers by
nature. (Are you?) Your Montreal chiropractor knows all sorts
of back pain sufferers and knows a variety of physical activity
options that may be more interesting. At Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic we try
to pair the exercise routine to the chronic back pain patient
and symptomatology to optimize the results of
exercise described in research studies to be valuable
in managing, relieving, and preventing back pain.
3 HOURS OF LEISURE TIME: What do you do?
What you do in your non-work hours makes a difference! Let us first describe
sedentary versus physically active.
Researchers in one study described physically active folks as
those who were more active in their leisure time. They devoted 3
hours of their leisure time a day being physically active. Sedentary
folks spent 3 hours or more per day of their leisure time sitting.
Physically active folks were 33% less likely to have low back pain contrasted
with more sedentary folks. (1) Takeaway: Be more physically active in your
off-time! Like gardening? Garden! Like walking? Walk! Like talking? Take a walk
with a friend, and talk!
ACTIVE AND SEDENTARY BACK PAIN SUFFERERS AND THEIR ACTIVITY
We’re all different! When it comes
to back pain, the difference shines even more in some
regards. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows some chronic low back
pain patients are more likely to exercise and be physically active than others who tend to be more
sedentary. What’s the difference in these folks? Researchers
found a few things: more physically active folks (those
who perform at least 150 minutes of moderate or 75 mins.
of vigorous physical activity a week) have a lower
body mass index and higher levels of leisure time physical activity. Sedentary
folks (those who perform more than 8 hours of time in sedentary
activities per day) tend to have low
levels of activity at work. (2) Hum? We know that such patient characteristics
need to be considered when taking care of back pain patients and
encouraging physical activity and reducing sedentary lifestyle activity. How
can Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic help our more sedentary back pain sufferers?
these little bits of information is helpful! Your Montreal
chiropractor is right here with you. Let us know your thoughts
on how we can help you!
