10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all that time? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Isn’t exercise number one on your list?! It’s recommended that all of us 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 Tarrytown chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so quickly for everyone, including time for your Tarrytown chiropractic physician at Tarrytown Chiropractic. Your Tarrytown chiropractic physician at Tarrytown Chiropractic encourages Tarrytown chiropractic patients to continue doing their exercise routines even when their Tarrytown 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 significant for Tarrytown back pain sufferers especially for Tarrytown post-back surgery patients who still experience 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 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 open to a second surgery (called a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the greater than 150 minutes a week of exercise opening them to the risk of degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain. (6) 150 minutes a week doesn’t sound like much anymore, does it? Tarrytown Chiropractic knows our Tarrytown chiropractic patients can find 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Tarrytown treatment plan of chiropractic care.
