10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all those minutes? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Is exercise number one on your list?! It’s recommended that all of us 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, do we not? Even your West Palm Beach chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so quickly for all of us, including time for your West Palm Beach chiropractic physician at Moses Chiropractic. Your West Palm Beach chiropractic physician at Moses Chiropractic encourages West Palm Beach chiropractic patients to continue doing their exercise routines even when their West Palm Beach back pain is not so bad.
Benefits of Exercise
People sleep better, are happier and less depressed when they exercise. (1,2) West Palm Beach chiropractic patients do, too! Hearts and minds are healthier when their owners exercise. (3,4) Just take a walk down your West Palm Beach 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 drops. (5) Life span may even expand due to heart workouts with aerobic exercise. (3) Moses Chiropractic 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 crucial for West Palm Beach back pain sufferers especially for West Palm Beach post-back surgery patients who still experience back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a significant 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 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 does not sound like much anymore, does it? Moses Chiropractic knows our West Palm Beach chiropractic patients can schedule 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole West Palm Beach treatment plan of chiropractic care.
