Chiropractic Tip: Leisurely Jogs Link to Longer Life
By Sandy Schroeder
We are all looking for the smartest ways to stay well and live longer, and leisurely jogging may be a good choice, according to Harvard Health.
Harvard doctors noted that Danish research found that going for a leisurely jog, about 5 miles per hour, two- to three times per week, helped people live longer. The Danes studied 1,500 people for 12 years and found leisurely joggers were less likely to die during the study than non-joggers who sat a lot and seldom exercised, according to reports in the February 2015 Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
How That Applies to Us
If you are like many of us, a little light jogging may be fairly easy to do, either early in the morning or later in the day. Or, brisk walking and short runs may work out well, too. The point is, we had better keep moving.
How Chiropractic Helps
Whatever your fitness goals and realities are, the Joint Chiropractic clinic near you can help you sort it all out to keep moving. The Joint’s doctors of chiropractic help people find the best answers for health, wellness and fitness every day.
Your chiropractor can help you assess your current fitness with a look at your lifestyle and health history. The chiropractic approach to improve spinal health may help you shed everyday aches and pains, and improve your overall sense of well-being.
A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may help provide far-reaching pain relief and new energy, better sleep, or a more focused awareness. Wellness is unique to the individual.
As you assess the benefits of chiropractic, weekly 15-minute adjustments may keep you at your peak and provide a wellness base to explore leisurely jogs or brisk walks. This may be the time to shake up everything.
