Age matters. It makes a
difference for the body, how it feels, how it moves, how well it
will take each of us into our older years. Age makes a
difference and gets us to pay attention to our bodies
as it changes with age. New Roads Chiropractic Center takes care
of New Roads chiropractic patients’ bodies usually when
they are hurting with back pain or neck pain. By the time
the body hurts, it has likely been years of life’s
using the body’s resources up as it ages. Fortunately,
New Roads Chiropractic Center is here to care for bodies of all ages at
any time their owners bring them to New Roads Chiropractic Center. Your
New Roads chiropractor recognizes pain is typically
what brings New Roads chiropractic patients to our practice, and New Roads Chiropractic Center is prepared to help
the aging body regain some fitness and pain relief.
PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at about
20 years of age and remains there into the
early 30s. That’s when the fitness levels start to decline
gradually into old age. The good news is that those who have the
best fitness levels in their 20s typically 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 developed, creating
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 develops osteoporosis and may feel
its difficulties later in life.
Physical activity and nutrition are issues that teens
have the ability to influence the building of the
best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they?
New Roads Chiropractic Center knows adolescent teens do not
worry about these things. The teen years have many other diversions
demanding their interest!
HOW CAN WE HELP New Roads TEENS BUILD THE BEST
Competition and activity seem to work! The best ways to get teens to as peak a fitness level as possible
is to encourage them to move early in life. One study arranged competition among student groups outfitted with
pedometers and monitored their steps for 12 weeks. Students in the
study all ended up doing more physical activity both in in-school
and in after-school activities. Their cardiorespiratory fitness improved.
Body fat and waist-to-height ratios decreased. The leisure-time
physical activity improved for a year
after the intervention. (2) New Roads Chiropractic Center devises
treatment plans for New Roads chiropractic patients of all ages that incorporates
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
