You & Olympians: Have Pain, Find Relief, Return to Exercise Year-Round

Everybody needs to exercise. Everyone needs to move. Physical activity is for all of us. Is 5K running or rappelling up a cliff necessary? Nope! Walking is terrific. Muscle strengthening is superb. Gardening when the season is right is amazing. No gyms are even required for the physical activity that will keep you feeling good. If a knee or back injury occurs – and they do to the best of us! – your Buffalo, NY chiropractor at The Novelli Wellness Center is ready to return you to moving with gentle, safe spinal distraction manipulation…and knee distraction for the common matter of knee pain!

EXERCISE IN ANY WEATHER

A study done in Finland in 2017 tracked the physical activity participation of 18-64 year olds and 65+ year-olds. Researchers discovered 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 interests people took part in throughout the year? Cleaning/maintenance work, walking, and stair climbing. What exercises did they perform most consistently throughout the year regardless 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 particular conditioning activities people will do. Suggestions for physical activity recommendations must use those to encourage the most physical activity possible. (1) What do you like to do? The Novelli Wellness Center is confident our Buffalo, NY chiropractic patients and their families can discover physical activities to do any time of year! Heck, even in snow, a good snowball toss can inspire activity!

OLYMPIC EXERCISE

Winter and summer, Olympians move! They’re really like us though their training may be a bit more intense. Elite athletes like the Olympians deal with pain and depression and keep going. A study of Olympians from the 1948 to 2018 games revealed 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 experienced in their training days. Depression was recounted by 6.6% of them.
