Age matters. It makes a
difference for the body, how it feels, how it goes, how well it
will take each of us into our future years. Age makes a
difference and gets us to pay attention to our bodies
as it transforms with age. Chiropractic Associates cares for Preston chiropractic patients’ bodies usually when
they are hurting with back pain or neck pain. By the time
the body hurts, it has typically been years of life’s
using the body’s resources up as it ages. Fortunately,
Chiropractic Associates is ready to care for bodies of all ages at
any time their owners take them to Chiropractic Associates. Your
Preston chiropractor realizes pain is usually
what gets Preston chiropractic patients to our practice, and Chiropractic Associates is ready to help
the aging body regain some fitness and pain relief.
PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember when you were in your 20s?
Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at around
20 years of age and stays there into the
early 30s. That’s when the fitness levels start to drop
steadily into old age. The good news is that those who have the
high fitness levels in their 20s usually stay
physically healthy and use less healthcare services during
their lives. Adolescence is the most important period in all
our lives. It is when our cardiovascular, cardiorespiratory,
skeletal, and muscular strength are built, forming
the foundation of health for life. Bone mineral density (BMD) peaks in the late
teen years. BMD is the main factor in
whether a person acquires osteoporosis and may feel
its effects in later life.
Physical activity and nutrition are things that teenagers
have control of to build the
best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they?
Chiropractic Associates knows adolescent teens do not
think about these things. The teen years have many other distractions
demanding their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP Preston TEENS BUILD THE BEST
Competition and activity seem to work! The
most efficient ways to get teens to as peak a fitness level as possible
is to encourage them to move early in life. One study set
up competition among student groups outfitted with
pedometers and monitored their steps for 12 weeks. Students in this
study all showed more physical activity both in in-school
and in after-school activities. Their cardiorespiratory fitness improved.
Body fat and waist-to-height ratios reduced. The leisure-time
physical activity improved even a year
after the intervention. (2) Chiropractic Associates devises
treatment plans for Preston chiropractic patients of all ages that includes
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
