"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." How’s that for a
title to a paper?! Disc Centers Of America 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. Luckily,
Disc Centers Of America 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) Disc Centers Of America enthusiastically agrees! Walking is great!
This a terrific message for all Buffalo, NY pain
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) Disc Centers Of America 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!
