Proper exercise is important at every age, but we seem to fall short on the significance of this as we get older. The importance of maintaining your health should always be a primary concern in your life; however, once you hit 40, a good exercise regimen should become your number one priority. Adopting a daily exercise regime is even more important from 40 onwards, than say, between the ages of 15–40 years. If you’re experiencing the pains of aging, particularly in your back, it might be time to see your Oakville and Mississauga-area chiropractor.
When it comes to exercise, there’s more to it than losing weight and looking better by swimsuit season.

There’s no denying that an active lifestyle is beneficial to a person’s overall health; however, sports can be physically demanding on the human body, especially for athletes who consistently push the boundaries of their physical capabilities. Incorrect training, poor diet, inadequate sleep and muscular overuse can all increase the risk of a sports injury.
Do you suffer from back pain? If you do you are not alone! Statistics have shown that 80% of North Americans’ will suffer a bout of back pain at some point in their lives. Now that’s a lot of discomfort!
Interestingly most of these back injuries can be attributed to the daily activities of life or better yet, lack of daily activity. Poor alignment, weak core muscles, prolonged sitting and standing, poor lifting techniques all lead to the wear and tear, strains and sprains as well as arthritic changes in the human body. Eventually over time, these factors add up and we in fact “earn” our injuries, such as Degenerative Disc Disease, Prolapsed or Herniated discs.
But not all back-pain sufferers are aware of the relief solutions available to them.
