Age makes a difference. It matters to the body, how it feels, how it moves, how well it
will take each of us into our future years. Age matters and gets us to pay attention to our bodies
as it changes with age. Minster Chiropractic Center cares for Minster chiropractic patients’ bodies often when
they are suffering with back pain or neck pain. When
the body hurts, it has likely been years of life’s
using the body’s resources up as it ages. Fortunately,
Minster Chiropractic Center is here to care for bodies of all ages at
any time their owners take them to Minster Chiropractic Center. Your
Minster chiropractor realizes pain is usually
what gets Minster chiropractic patients to make an
appointment, and Minster Chiropractic Center is prepared to help
the aging body recover some fitness and pain relief.
PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember when you were in your 20s?
Researchers report that physical fitness peaks at about
20 years of age and remains there until the
early 30s. That is when the fitness levels begin to drop
gradually into old age. The good news is that those who have the
high fitness levels in their 20s typically stay
physically healthy and need less healthcare services throughout
their lives. Adolescence is the most important phase in all
our lives. It’s when our cardiovascular, cardiorespiratory,
skeletal, and muscular strength are built, 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 gets osteoporosis and may suffer
its effects 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?
Minster Chiropractic Center knows adolescent teens do not
think about these things. The teen years have many other distractions
demanding their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP Minster TEENS BUILD THE BEST
Competition and activity seem to work! The
most efficient ways to get teens to as peak a fitness level as imaginable
is to get them moving 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 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) Minster Chiropractic Center devises
treatment plans for Minster chiropractic patients of all ages that incorporates
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter how
old it is!
