Buffalo, NY Exercise Helps Cope with Pain and Aging

"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How’s that for a title to a paper?! The Novelli Wellness Center was even startled a bit, but it’s true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all have to keep going forward! This is so true for middle- to older-age Buffalo, NY back and neck pain sufferers. Fortunately, The Novelli Wellness Center is here to help.

ANTI-AGING EXERCISE BENEFITS

We all start looking for anti-aging benefits at that certain age! One group of researchers wrote that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and called for more research to acquire knowledge of just how molecular mediators of exercise benefits function in older folks instead of just turning to pharmaceuticals. (1) The Novelli Wellness Center enthusiastically agrees! Walking is great! This a terrific message for all Buffalo, NY pain sufferers!

BENEFICIAL DAILY EXERCISE STEPS

Walk 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 investigated. They sported an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were followed for a mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were analyzed in 2020 and 2021 to measure what, if any, association was made 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 associated with 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 took less. (2) The Novelli Wellness Center sees how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and encourages Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients to take walks as best they can. Any walk will do!
