Everybody ought to exercise. Everybody
needs to move. Physical activity is for each and every one
of us. Is mountain climbing or marathon
running required? Not at all! Walking is superb.
Muscle strengthening is superb. Gardening when the season is decent
is amazing. No gyms are even required for the physical
activity that will make you feel good. If a knee or back
injury occurs – and they do to the best of us! –
your La Grande chiropractor at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is ready to get you back to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and
knee distraction for the common issue of knee pain!
EXERCISE IN ANY SEASON
A survey conducted 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 activities people did throughout that time? Cleaning/maintenance
work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they do
most consistently throughout the year irrespective 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 came to the conclusion
that there are certain conditioning activities people will do.
Suggestions for physical activity recommendations must use
those to inspire the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC is confident our La Grande chiropractic patients and
their families can agree physical activities
to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can get us moving!
Winter and summer, Olympians move! They’re really like us though their training may be a bit more intense. Elite athletes like the Olympians cope with
pain and depression and keep going. A survey of Olympians
from the 1948 to 2018 games found that 32.4% describe
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 reported
by 6.6% of them. (2) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC shares these Olympians’
stats with our La Grande chiropractic patients letting
them know thery are not alone in their pain struggles.
