"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How is that for a title to a paper?! Moriarty Chiropractic 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 real for middle- to older-age Nashua back and neck pain sufferers. Luckily, Moriarty Chiropractic is here to help.
ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS
We all start considering anti-aging benefits at that certain age! One set of researchers stated that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and recommended more research to gather knowledge of just how molecular mediators of exercise benefits function in older folks instead of just turning to pharmaceuticals. (1) Moriarty Chiropractic enthusiastically agrees! Walking is amazing! This a terrific message for all Nashua pain sufferers!
BENEFICIAL DAILY EXERCISE STEPS
Walk 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 wore an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were followed for a mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were examined in 2020 and 2021 to see what, if any, association was made between steps-per-day and all-mortality death risk. This study was a portion 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 took 7000 steps or more a day compared with those who walked less. (2) Moriarty Chiropractic witnesses how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges Nashua chiropractic patients to take walks as best they can. Any walk will do!
EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN
How do most Nashua back pain patients cope with chronic low back pain? Some of the things people may express 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. Moriarty Chiropractic sees them all! Moriarty Chiropractic is here to help. We meet each back pain sufferer – 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 sufferers deal with chronic low back pain acknowledged how pain influences life. (3) So does Moriarty Chiropractic.
