Age matters. It matters to the body, how it feels, how it goes, how well it will take each of us into our older years. Age matters and makes us each pay attention to our bodies as it changes with age. Young Chiropractic cares for Easley chiropractic patients’ bodies usually when they are suffering with back pain or neck pain. When the body hurts, it’s likely been years of life’s using the body’s resources up as it ages. Fortunately, Young Chiropractic is ready to care for bodies of all ages at any time their owners take them to Young Chiropractic. Your Easley chiropractor realizes pain is usually what brings Easley chiropractic patients to make an appointment, and Young Chiropractic is ready to help the aging body recover some fitness and pain relief.
PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember when you were in your 20s? Researchers explain that physical fitness peaks at about 20 years of age and remains high until the early 30s. That’s when the fitness levels begin to drop steadily into old age. The good news is that those who have the high fitness levels in their 20s typically stay physically healthy and seek 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 built, 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 feel its complications later in life. Physical activity and nutrition are factors that teenagers have control of to build the best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they? Young Chiropractic recognizes that adolescent teens don’t worry about these things. The teen years have many other diversions demanding their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP Easley TEENS BUILD THE BEST BODIES POSSIBLE?
Competition and activity seem to work! The most efficient ways to get teens to as peak a fitness level as imaginable is to get them moving early in life. One study set up competition among student groups equipped with pedometers and monitored their steps for 12 weeks. Students in the 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 reduced. The leisure-time physical activity remained high for a year after the intervention.
