10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all those minutes? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Exercise does not usually appear in at number one on most people’s lists of favorite things to do with their time. It is recommended that all of us exercise at least 150 minutes a week. (6) That’s just
- 2 and a half hours a week.
- 5 sessions of 30 minutes a week.
- 10 sessions of 15 minutes a week.

Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more crucial for Fort Wayne back pain sufferers particularly for Fort Wayne post-back surgery patients who still have back pain. Post-surgical patients who exercise 150 minutes a week show a significant decrease in pain and reoperation rate states 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 per 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 doesn’t sound like much anymore, does it? Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center knows our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients can find 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Fort Wayne treatment plan of chiropractic care.
