Everyone needs to exercise. Everybody outght to move. Physical activity is for each and every one of us. Is mountain climbing or marathon running necessary? Nope! Walking is superb. Muscle strengthening is just right. Gardening when the season is suitable is wonderful. No gyms are even necessary for the physical activity that will keep you feeling good. If a knee or back injury occurs – and they happen to the best of us! – your Southern New Hampshire chiropractor at New Hampshire Spine and Sport is here to get you back to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and knee distraction for the familiar matter of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY SEASON
A survey conducted in Finland in 2017 followed the physical activity participation of 18-64 year olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers discovered that the 18-64 year olds achieved 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 activities people performed throughout the year? 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 came to the conclusion that there are particular conditioning activities people will do. Proposals for physical activity recommendations must incorporate those to inspire the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do?

Winter and summer, Olympians move! They are really like us though their training may be a bit more on the intense side. Elite athletes like the Olympians cope with pain and depression and keep moving. A survey of Olympians from the 1948 to 2018 games found that 32.4% report current pain, and 35.9% report current functional limitations due to their Olympics’ days. Knee (20.6% lasting for a median of 120 days) and lumbar spine (13.1% lasting 100 days) were the top two injuries Olympians suffered in their training days. Depression was recounted by 6.6% of them. (2) New Hampshire Spine and Sport presents these Olympians’ stats with our Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients to let them know they’re not alone in their pain struggles.
