Age Matters to Your Body Enhance Its State with Sitka Chiropractic Care

Age makes a difference. 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 makes us each pay attention to our bodies as it changes with age. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka cares for Sitka chiropractic patients’ bodies often when they are suffering 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.

Your Sitka chiropractor recognizes pain is typically what gets Sitka chiropractic patients to our practice, and Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka 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 stays high 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 high fitness levels in their 20s typically stay physically healthy and use 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, 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 acquires osteoporosis and may suffer its effects in later life. Physical activity and nutrition are factors that teenagers have the ability to influence the building of the best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they? Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka recognizes that adolescent teens don’t worry about these things. The teen years have many other distractions drawing their attention!


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 arranged competition among student groups equipped 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 decreased. The leisure-time physical activity remained high for a year after the intervention. (2) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka makes treatment plans for Sitka 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!
