You & Olympians: Have Pain, Find Relief, Return to Exercise Year-Round

Everyone needs to exercise. Everyone outght to move. Physical activity is for all of us. Is 5K running or rappelling up a cliff required? Nope! Walking is superb. Muscle strengthening is just right. Gardening when the season is decent is amazing. No gyms are even required for the physical activity that will keep you feeling good. If a knee or back injury happens – and they do to the best of us! – your Baton Rouge chiropractor at Spine & Sports Rehab Center is ready to return you to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and knee distraction for the common matter of knee pain!

EXERCISE IN ANY SEASON

A survey done in Finland in 2017 followed the physical activity participation of 18-64 year olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers found 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 interests people took part in throughout that time? Cleaning/maintenance work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they perform most consistently throughout the year regardless 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 concluded that there are particular conditioning activities people will do. Proposals for physical activity recommendations must use those to encourage the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Spine & Sports Rehab Center is confident our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients and their families can discover physical activities to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can inspire activity!

OLYMPIC EXERCISE

Winter and summer, Olympians move! They’re really like us though their training may be a bit more on the intense side. Elite athletes like the Olympians deal with pain and depression and keep moving. A study of Olympians from the 1948 to 2018 games revealed that 32.4% report pain today, and 35.9% have functional limitations they connect to their Olympics’ days. Knee (20.6% lasting 120 days median) 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.
