10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all that time? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Exercise does not always come in at number one on most people’s lists of favorite things to do with their time. Researchers recommend that we all put in at least 150 minutes of exercise a week.

- 2 and a half hours a week.
- 5 sessions of 30 minutes a week.
- 10 sessions of 15 minutes a week.

Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more crucial for La Grande back pain sufferers especially for La Grande post-back surgery patients who still have back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a remarkable reduction in pain and reoperation rate states 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 opening them to the risk of degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain.
