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?! It is recommended that we all put in at least 150 minutes of exercise 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 does not seem like much, but we need to schedule it into our busy lives, do we not? Even your Manchester chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so quickly for all of us, including time for your Manchester chiropractic physician at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries. Your Manchester chiropractic physician at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries encourages Manchester chiropractic patients to continue doing their exercise routines even when their Manchester back pain is not so bad.

Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more crucial for Manchester back pain sufferers especially for Manchester post-back surgery patients who still have back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a notable reduction in pain and reoperation rate reports a new study of post-surgery back pain patients. In this study the mean age was 57 years of age. 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 (called 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? Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries knows our Manchester chiropractic patients can arrange 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Manchester treatment plan of chiropractic care.
