Age Matters to Your Body Enhance Its State with New Roads Chiropractic Care

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.


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!


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 even 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!
