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. Lakeshore Chiropractic cares for Two Rivers chiropractic patients’ bodies often when
they are hurting 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. Luckily,
Lakeshore Chiropractic is ready to care for bodies of all ages whenever their owners take them to Lakeshore Chiropractic. Your
Two Rivers chiropractor understands pain is typically
what gets Two Rivers chiropractic patients to our practice, and Lakeshore Chiropractic is ready to help
the aging body recover some fitness and pain relief.
PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers explain that physical fitness peaks at about
20 years of age and stays high until the
early 30s. That’s 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 usually stay
physically healthy and need less healthcare services during
their lives. Adolescence is the most important stage in all
our lives. It’s when our cardiovascular, cardiorespiratory,
skeletal, and muscular strength are developed, 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 develops osteoporosis and may suffer
its effects later in life.
Physical activity and nutrition are things that teens
have the ability to influence the building of the
best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they?
Lakeshore Chiropractic recognizes that adolescent teens do not
think about these things. The teen years have many other diversions
demanding their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP Two Rivers 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 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 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 reduced. The leisure-time
physical activity remained high for a year
after the intervention. (2) Lakeshore Chiropractic devises
treatment plans for Two Rivers chiropractic patients of all ages that incorporates
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
