"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." Now,
there is a title to a research paper! Johnson 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 Richmond back and neck pain sufferers. Fortunately,
Johnson Chiropractic is here for you.
ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS
We all start looking for anti-aging
benefits at that certain age! One set of researchers stated
that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and called
for more research to acquire knowledge of just how molecular
mediators of exercise benefits work in older folks instead of just looking for pharmaceuticals. (1) Johnson Chiropractic wholeheartedly agrees! Walking is amazing!
This a terrific message for all Richmond pain
BENEFICIAL DAILY EXERCISE STEPS
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 followed. They wore
an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were monitored for a
mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were examined in 2020 and 2021
to measure what, if any, association was made 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 linked to 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 took less. (2) Johnson Chiropractic witnesses
how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges
Richmond chiropractic patients to take walks as best
they can. Any walk will do!
EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN
How do most Richmond 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 is no proper answer. Johnson Chiropractic sees them all! Johnson Chiropractic is here to help. We meet each back pain sufferer
– old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We build a
treatment plan together. The researchers who formulated the
above basic 5 categories of how patients manage
chronic low back pain recognized how pain influences
life. (3) So does Johnson Chiropractic. Visiting our
Richmond chiropractic office is a good step toward perseverance in managing pain and enjoying life!
