Augusta Chiropractic Exercise Plans for Post-Surgery Care

March 21, 2017

10,080 minutes are in a week.  What do you do with all that time? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Is exercise number one on your list?!  Researchers recommend that all of us exercise at least 150 minutes a week. (6) That’s only  

  • 2 and a half hours a week.
  • 5 sessions of 30 minutes a week.
  • 10 sessions of 15 minutes a week.

That doesn’t seem like much, but we need to schedule it into our busy lives, don’t we? Even your Augusta chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so quickly for all of us, including time for your Augusta chiropractic physician at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic. Your Augusta chiropractic physician at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic encourages Augusta chiropractic patients to keep up their exercise routines even when their Augusta back pain is not so bad.

Benefits of Exercise 

Exercise allows people to be happier, less depressed and sleep better. (1,2) Augusta chiropractic patients benefit like this, too! Hearts and minds are healthier when their owners exercise. (3,4) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic challenges you to get out and try a walk! See how much clearer you think and better you feel with your heart pumping. Exercise reduce memory loss. (4) Exercise reduces depressive symptoms. (2) Blood pressure falls. (5) Life span may even increase due to heart workouts with aerobic exercise. (3)  What do you think of all these possibilities? Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic encourages you to see the positives!

Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more significant for Augusta back pain sufferers especially for Augusta post-back surgery patients who still experience back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a notable decrease in pain and reoperation rate reports a new study of post-surgery back pain patients. In this study the mean age was 57 years old. 80% of them had degenerative diagnoses. 63% had gone through a multilevel back surgery. Only 35% of them met the greater than 1400 kcal a week exercise expenditure and left them vulnerable to a second surgery (named a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the more than 150 minutes a week of exercise leaving them open to degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain. (6) 150 minutes a week does not sound like much anymore, does it? Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic knows our Augusta chiropractic patients can schedule 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Augusta treatment plan of chiropractic care
