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

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.


Remember when you were in your 20s? Researchers explain that physical fitness peaks at about 20 years of age and stays 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!


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!
