"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How is that for a
title to a paper?! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC was even startled a bit,
but it is true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all
have to keep moving forward! This is never more true
for middle- to older-age La Grande back and neck pain sufferers. Fortunately,
Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is here to help.
ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS
We all start looking for anti-aging
benefits at that certain age! One group of researchers stated
that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and recommended more research to acquire knowledge of just how molecular
mediators of exercise benefits function in older folks instead of just looking for pharmaceuticals. (1) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC wholeheartedly agrees! Walking is great!
This an important message for all La Grande pain
BENEFICIAL DAILY EXERCISE STEPS
Take a walking stroll each day with a goal of
7000 steps. Why? Research. 2,110 black and white men and women and their
steps-per-day counts were followed. They wore
an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were followed for a
mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were examined in 2020 and 2021
to measure what, if any, association was found between steps-per-day
and all-mortality death risk. This study was part of the larger
CARDIA (Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults) study.
Steps-taken-per-day were described as “low” (less than 7000),
“moderate” (7000-9999) and “high” (more than 10,000). Stepping intensity –
stepping rate – played a role, too. Moderate/high step rate was linked to a decreased risk of mortality in black and
white women and men in middle-age who walked 7000 steps or more a
day compared with those who walked less. (2) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC sees
how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and encourages
La Grande chiropractic patients to walk what
they can. Any walk will do!
EXERCISE HELPS COPING WITH PAIN
How do most La Grande back pain patients deal
with chronic low back pain? Some of the things people may express are these:
- I feel helpless because nothing works.
- I feel down and depressed.
- I distantly wish for an end to it.
- I accept the reality of my pain.
- The pain stays, I keep going.
What about you? There’s no proper answer. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC sees them all! Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is by
everyone’s side. We meet each back pain patient
– old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We create a

above basic 5 categories of how patients deal with
chronic low back pain acknowledged how pain influences
life. (3) So does Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC. Visiting our
