physical activity really important? Back pain sufferers ask,
especially those who don’t enjoy physical activity! May West Palm Beach back pain sufferers are not physical activity ‘junkies’ by
nature. (Are you?) Your West Palm Beach chiropractor meets all types
of back pain sufferers and knows all sorts of physical activity
options that may be more appealing. At Moses Chiropractic we try
to match the exercise option to the chronic back pain sufferer
and symptomatology to optimize the outcomes of
exercise shown in research studies to be valuable
in managing, relieving, and preventing back pain.
3 HOURS OF LEISURE TIME: What do you do?
What you do in your non-work hours makes a difference! Let us first define
sedentary versus physically active.
Researchers in one study defined physically active folks as
those who were more active in their leisure time. They devoted 3
hours of their leisure time a day being physically active. Sedentary
folks spent 3 hours or more a day of their leisure time sitting.
Physically active folks were 33% less likely to have low back pain contrasted
with more sedentary folks. (1) Takeaway: Be more physically active in your
off-time! Like gardening? Garden! Like walking? Walk! Like talking? Take a walk
with a friend, and talk!
ACTIVE AND SEDENTARY BACK PAIN SUFFERERS AND THEIR ACTIVITY
We are all different! When it comes
to back pain, the difference comes to light even more in some
regards. Moses Chiropractic knows some chronic low back
pain patients are more likely to exercise and be physically active than others who tend to be more
sedentary. What is the difference in these folks? Researchers
found a couple things: more physically active folks (those
who do at least 150 mins. of moderate or 75 minutes
of vigorous physical activity a week) experience lower
body mass index and higher levels of leisure time physical activity. Sedentary
folks (those who spend more than 8 hours of time in sedentary
activities a day) are more likely to have lesser
levels of activity at work. (2) Hum? We know that such patient characteristics
need to be considered when taking care of back pain patients and
encouraging physical activity and reducing sedentary lifestyle activity. How
can Moses Chiropractic assist our more sedentary back pain sufferers?
these little bits of information is helpful! Your West Palm Beach
chiropractor is here for you. Let us know your thoughts
on how we can help you!
