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 usually appear in at number one on most people’s lists of favorite things to do with their time. It is recommended that all of us put in at least 150 minutes of exercise 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 does not seem like much, but we need to schedule it into our busy lives, do we not? Even your Baton Rouge chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so fast for all of us, including time for your Baton Rouge chiropractic physician at Spine & Sports Rehab Center. Your Baton Rouge chiropractic physician at Spine & Sports Rehab Center encourages Baton Rouge chiropractic patients to keep up their exercise routines even when their Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge back pain sufferers especially for Baton Rouge post-back surgery patients who still have back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a notable decrease in pain and reoperation rate states 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 open to a second surgery (called 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 doesn’t sound like much anymore, does it? Spine & Sports Rehab Center knows our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients can arrange 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Baton Rouge treatment plan of chiropractic care.
