Fort Wayne Exercise Helps Cope with Pain and Aging

October 05, 2021

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


We all start considering anti-aging benefits at that certain age! One group of researchers stated 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 work in older folks instead of just turning to pharmaceuticals. (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc enthusiastically agrees! Walking is great! This an important message for all Fort Wayne pain sufferers!


Walk 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 sported an accelerometer from 2005 to 2006 and then were followed for a mean of 10.8 years. Their stats were analyzed in 2020 and 2021 to measure 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 walked 7000 steps or more a day compared with those who took less. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc sees how walking helps – 7000 steps or not – and urges Fort Wayne chiropractic patients to take walks as best they can. Any walk will do!


How do most Fort Wayne 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. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc sees them all! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is present to help. 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 came up with the above basic 5 categories of how sufferers deal with chronic low back pain recognized how pain influences life. (3) So does Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc.
