Age matters. 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 transforms with age. Johnson Chiropractic takes care
of Richmond chiropractic patients’ bodies often when
they are suffering with back pain or neck pain. When
the body hurts, it has likely been years of life’s
using the body’s resources up as it ages. Luckily,
Johnson Chiropractic is here to care for bodies of all ages at
any time their owners bring them to Johnson Chiropractic. Your
Richmond chiropractor recognizes pain is usually
what gets Richmond chiropractic patients to our practice, and Johnson Chiropractic is prepared to help
the aging body regain 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 start to drop
gradually into old age. The good news is that those who have the
best fitness levels in their 20s typically stay
physically healthy and use less healthcare services during
their lives. Adolescence is the most important period in all
our lives. It is 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
teens. BMD is the main factor in
whether a person acquires osteoporosis and may suffer
its complications in later life.
Physical activity and nutrition are things that teenagers
have the ability to influence the building of the
best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they?
Johnson Chiropractic recognizes that adolescent teens don’t
worry about these things. The teen years have many other diversions
drawing their interest!
HOW CAN WE HELP Richmond TEENS BUILD THE BEST
Competition and activity seem to work! The best ways to get teens to as peak a fitness level as possible
is to get them moving early in life. One study set
up competition among student groups outfitted 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 increased.
Body fat and waist-to-height ratios reduced. The leisure-time
physical activity remained high even a year
after the intervention. (2) Johnson Chiropractic makes
treatment plans for Richmond 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!
