Age makes a difference. 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. Back And Neck Care Center cares for Severna Park chiropractic patients’ bodies often when
they are suffering with back pain or neck pain. By the time
the body hurts, it’s likely been years of life’s
using the body’s resources up as it ages. Fortunately,
Back And Neck Care Center is ready to care for bodies of all ages at
any time their owners bring them to Back And Neck Care Center. Your
Severna Park chiropractor recognizes pain is usually
what gets Severna Park chiropractic patients to our practice, and Back And Neck Care Center is prepared to help
the aging body recover some fitness and pain relief.
PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers report that physical fitness peaks at around
20 years of age and stays there 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
peak fitness levels in their 20s typically stay
physically healthy and need 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 influence in
whether a person develops osteoporosis and may suffer
its difficulties later in life.
Physical activity and nutrition are issues that teenagers
have the ability to influence the building of the
best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they?
Back And Neck Care Center knows adolescent teens don’t
worry about these things. The teen years have many other diversions
drawing their interest!
HOW CAN WE HELP Severna Park 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 arranged 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 increased.
Body fat and waist-to-height ratios decreased. The leisure-time
physical activity remained high for a year
after the intervention. (2) Back And Neck Care Center devises
treatment plans for Severna Park chiropractic patients of all ages that includes
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
