10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all that time? 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’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.

Time goes by so quickly for all of us, including time for your Fort Wayne chiropractic physician at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic.

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