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 always appear in at number one on most people’s lists of favorite things to do with their time. It is recommended that we all put in at least 150 minutes of exercise 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.
It is not that much, but we need to schedule it into our busy lives, don’t we? Even your New York City chiropractor needs to do that! Time goes by so quickly for everyone, including time for your New York City chiropractic physician at Innate Wisdom. Your New York City chiropractic physician at Innate Wisdom encourages New York City chiropractic patients to continue doing their exercise routines even when they are feeling better and their back pain is better.

Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more crucial for New York City back pain sufferers especially for New York City 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 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 (called a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the more 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? Innate Wisdom knows our New York City chiropractic patients can arrange 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole New York City treatment plan of chiropractic care.
