10,080 minutes are in a week. What do you do with all those minutes? Sleep, eat, talk, work, listen, shop, drive…exercise? Isn’t exercise number one on your list?! It is 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.

Exercise is life-giving. Exercise is life-supporting. Exercise is all that for normal spine folks but even more important for Pflugerville back pain sufferers especially for Pflugerville post-back surgery patients who still have 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 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 a week exercise expenditure and left them open to a second surgery (named a revision surgery). Only 26% of post back surgery patients met the more than 150 minutes a week of exercise leaving them open to degenerative diagnoses, subsequent spine surgery, and more postoperative back pain. (6) 150 minutes a week doesn’t sound like much anymore, does it? Pflugerville Wellness Center knows our Pflugerville chiropractic patients can arrange 2.5 hours a week for their back’s sake. It's part of the whole Pflugerville treatment plan of chiropractic care.
