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. Fortunately,
Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is here to care for bodies of all ages whenever their owners take them to Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka. 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.
PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
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!
HOW CAN WE HELP Sitka TEENS BUILD THE BEST
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!
