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

September 25, 2018

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 gets us to pay attention to our bodies as it transforms with age. Johnson Chiropractic takes care of Richmond chiropractic patients’ bodies often when they are hurting with back pain or neck pain. By the time the body hurts, it’s typically 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 whenever their owners bring them to Johnson Chiropractic. Your Richmond chiropractor recognizes pain is usually what brings Richmond chiropractic patients to our practice, and Johnson Chiropractic is ready to help the aging body regain some fitness and pain relief.


Remember when you were in your 20s? Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at about 20 years of age and stays high until 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 high fitness levels in their 20s typically stay physically healthy and need less healthcare services during their lives. Adolescence is the most important stage in all our lives. It is when our cardiovascular, cardiorespiratory, skeletal, and muscular strength are developed, forming the foundation of health for life. Bone mineral density (BMD) peaks in the late teens. BMD is the main factor in whether a person develops osteoporosis and may suffer its complications in later life. Physical activity and nutrition are issues that teens have control of to build the best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they? Johnson Chiropractic recognizes that adolescent teens do not worry about these things. The teen years have many other diversions drawing their interest!


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 arranged competition among student groups outfitted 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 decreased. The leisure-time physical activity improved even a year after the intervention.
