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

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 often 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.


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 teen years. 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!


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.
