10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all those minutes? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Exercise doesn’t always appear in at number one on most people’s lists of favorite things to do with their time. Researchers recommend that we all put in at least 150 minutes of exercise a week. (6) That’s only
- 2 and a half hours a week.
- 5 sessions of 30 minutes a week.
- 10 sessions of 15 minutes a week.
That does not seem like much, but we need to schedule it into our busy lives, don’t we? Even your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so quickly for all of us, including time for your Southern New Hampshire chiropractic physician at New Hampshire Spine and Sport. Your Southern New Hampshire chiropractic physician at New Hampshire Spine and Sport encourages Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients to continue doing their exercise routines even when their Southern New Hampshire back pain is not so bad.

Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more crucial for Southern New Hampshire back pain sufferers particularly for Southern New Hampshire post-back surgery patients who still experience back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a notable reduction in pain and reoperation rate reports a new study of post-surgery back pain patients. In this study the mean age was 57 years of age. 80% of them had degenerative diagnoses. 63% had gone through a multilevel back surgery. Only 35% of them met the greater than 1400 kcal per week exercise expenditure and left them vulnerable to a second surgery (named a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the more than 150 minutes a week of exercise leaving them open to degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain. (6) 150 minutes a week does not sound like much anymore, does it? New Hampshire Spine and Sport knows our Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients can find 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Southern New Hampshire treatment plan of chiropractic care.
