Augusta Exercise Helps Cope with Pain and Aging

October 05, 2021

"If you don't keep going, you're gonna die." Now, there is a title to a research paper! Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic was even startled a bit, but it’s true. No matter your age, your pain, your life plan, we all have to keep moving forward! This is so true for middle- to older-age Augusta back and neck pain sufferers. Fortunately, Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is here for you.


We all start considering anti-aging benefits at a certain age! One set of researchers wrote that regular exercise has multi-system anti-aging effects and called for more research to gain knowledge of just how molecular mediators of exercise benefits function in older folks rather than just turning to pharmaceuticals. (1) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic wholeheartedly agrees! Walking is great! This a terrific message for all Augusta pain sufferers!


Take a walking stroll 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 studied. They wore an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were monitored for a mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were analyzed in 2020 and 2021 to see what, if any, association was made between steps-per-day and all-mortality death risk. This study was a portion of the larger CARDIA (Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults) study. Steps-taken-per-day were defined 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 took 7000 steps or more a day compared with those who walked less. (2) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic witnesses how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and encourages Augusta chiropractic patients to take walks as best they can. Any walk will do!


How do most Augusta back pain patients cope with chronic low back pain? Some of the things people may express are these:

  • I feel helpless because nothing works.
  • I feel down and depressed.
  • I distantly wish for an end to it.
  • I accept the reality of my pain.
  • The pain stays, I keep going.

What about you? There is no right or wrong answer. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic sees them all! Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic is by everyone’s side. We meet each back pain patient – old or young, active or inactive – where each one is. We build a treatment plan together. The researchers who formulated the above basic 5 categories of how patients deal with chronic low back pain acknowledged how pain influences life. (3) So does Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic. Coming to our Augusta chiropractic office is a positive step toward perseverance in managing pain and enjoying life!
