Age makes a difference. It makes a
difference for the body, how it feels, how it goes, how well it
will take each of us into our future years. Age makes a
difference and makes us each pay attention to our bodies
as it changes with age. Soft Health and Healing Clinic takes care
of Brooks 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,
Soft Health and Healing Clinic is here to care for bodies of all ages whenever their owners take them to Soft Health and Healing Clinic. Your
Brooks chiropractor realizes pain is typically
what gets Brooks chiropractic patients to our practice, and Soft Health and Healing Clinic is ready to help
the aging body regain some fitness and pain relief.
PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers explain that physical fitness peaks at around
20 years of age and stays there into the
early 30s. That is when the fitness levels begin to decline
steadily into old age. The good news is that those who have the
peak fitness levels in their 20s usually stay
physically healthy and use less healthcare services throughout
their lives. Adolescence is the most important period in all
our lives. It’s when our cardiovascular, cardiorespiratory,
skeletal, and muscular strength are formed, creating
the foundation of health for life. Bone mineral density (BMD) peaks in the late
teens. BMD is the main factor in
whether a person gets osteoporosis and may suffer
its complications later in life.
Physical activity and nutrition are factors that teens
have control of to build the
best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they?
Soft Health and Healing Clinic recognizes that adolescent teens don’t
think about these things. The teen years have many other distractions
demanding their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP Brooks 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 outfitted with
pedometers and monitored their steps for 12 weeks. Students in this
study all ended up doing more physical activity both in in-school
and in after-school activities. Their cardiorespiratory fitness increased.
Body fat and waist-to-height ratios decreased. The leisure-time
physical activity remained high for a year
after the intervention. (2) Soft Health and Healing Clinic makes
treatment plans for Brooks 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!
