A Little Exercise, A Longer Life  

Individuals partaking in even just a small amount of low-intensity exercise are significantly less likely to die prematurely than their sedentary counterparts, according to researchers.  The findings come from examining data from 10 previous studies of more than 36,000 older subjects.  The evidence is becoming more clear – stop moving, and the risk of death increases significantly.  Being sedentary 10 hours a day increased death during the close to 7-year study by 48%.  Those that pushed their sedentary lifestyle to 12 hours a day nearly tripled their risk of death during this time frame.  The good news is that researchers found that literally any level of physical activity level was beneficial.  Thus, you don’t need to run a marathon or even run to reap the benefits.  Simply get up, get out and just move!

Chiropractic Care Beneficial For Disc Herniations  

A recently published study has found chiropractic spinal manipulation provides beneficial effects for individuals with painful disc herniations. The study included 148 patients suffering from acute and chronic low back pain and leg pain with visible lumbar (lower back) disc herniations as seen on MRI. Patients were treated with chiropractic spinal manipulation - the most common treatment provided by chiropractors. Researchers reported significant improvements for all outcomes at all points of follow-up. At the 3 month mark, approximately 91% of patients were "improved" with 88% "improved" at the 1 year mark. Although acute patients improved faster by 3 months, 82% of chronic patients reported "improvement" with 89% "improved" at 1 year. Importantly, there were no adverse events reported from receiving their chiropractic care. If you are suffering from back pain, leg pain and/or have a known disc herniation, contact your local chiropractor for a consultation today.

Sleep Longer For A Healthier Brain  

Numerous sleep studies have been conducted to determine how sleep affects the human body and overall health. However, no studies have specifically looked into how sleep affects the brain in aging adults. In efforts to answer this question, Chinese researchers reviewed MRI scans, health questionnaires and cognitive tests on 66 Chinese adults over the age of 55. They then repeated this 2 years later and compared the data. Their findings indicate that those who slept less had more age-related brain shrinkage and an increased decline in cognitive performance. Sleep plays a crucial role in cellular repair and memory consolidation. Lack sleep and you’ll starve your body’s ability to heal, repair and regenerate. Researchers offered the following tips to those who struggle with adequate sleep - Avoid napping during the day, keep your bedroom dark and quiet, have a comfortable mattress, avoid alcohol and cigarettes, and avoid activities that excite your brain and body close to bedtime.
