10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all those minutes? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Exercise does not usually come in at number one on most people’s lists of favorite things to do with their time. It is recommended that we all exercise at least 150 minutes a week. (6) That’s just
- 2 and a half hours a week.
- 5 sessions of 30 minutes a week.
- 10 sessions of 15 minutes a week.
That doesn’t seem like much, but we need to schedule it into our busy lives, do we not? Even your Murfreesboro chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so quickly for everyone, including time for your Murfreesboro chiropractic physician at Most Chiropractic Clinic. Your Murfreesboro chiropractic physician at Most Chiropractic Clinic encourages Murfreesboro chiropractic patients to continue doing their exercise routines even when their Murfreesboro back pain is not so bad.
Benefits of Exercise
People sleep better, are happier and less depressed when they exercise. (1,2) Murfreesboro chiropractic patients benefit like this, too! Hearts and minds are healthier when their owners exercise. (3,4) Just take a walk down your Murfreesboro street, and see how much clearer you think and better you feel with your heart pumping. Exercise slows memory loss. (4) Exercise decreases depressive symptoms. (2) Blood pressure falls. (5) Life span may even be increased due to heart workouts with aerobic exercise. (3) Most Chiropractic Clinic sees lots of positives from all of these!
Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more important for Murfreesboro back pain sufferers especially for Murfreesboro post-back surgery patients who still experience back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a notable decrease in pain and reoperation rate reports a new study of post-surgery back pain patients. In this study the mean age was 57 years old. 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 (called a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the greater 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 doesn’t sound like much anymore, does it? Most Chiropractic Clinic knows our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients can arrange 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Murfreesboro treatment plan of chiropractic care.
