Age makes a difference. It makes a
difference for the body, how it feels, how it goes, how well it
will take each of us into our future years. Age makes a
difference and gets us to pay attention to our bodies
as it transforms with age. Vancouver Spine Care Centre takes care
of Vancouver chiropractic patients’ bodies usually when
they are suffering 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,
Vancouver Spine Care Centre is ready to care for bodies of all ages at
any time their owners take them to Vancouver Spine Care Centre. Your
Vancouver chiropractor recognizes pain is usually
what gets Vancouver chiropractic patients to make an
appointment, and Vancouver Spine Care Centre is prepared to help
the aging body regain some fitness and pain relief.
PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers report that physical fitness peaks at about
20 years of age and stays high into the
early 30s. That is 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 usually stay
physically healthy and need less healthcare services throughout
their lives. Adolescence is the most important phase in all
our lives. It is 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
teen years. BMD is the main factor in
whether a person acquires osteoporosis and may feel
its difficulties in later life.
Physical activity and nutrition are issues that teens
have the ability to influence the building of the
best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they?
Vancouver Spine Care Centre knows adolescent teens do not
worry about these things. The teen years have many other diversions
drawing their interest!
HOW CAN WE HELP Vancouver TEENS BUILD THE BEST
Competition and activity seem to work! The
most efficient ways to get teens to as peak a fitness level as possible
is to encourage them to move early in life. One study arranged competition among student groups equipped 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 improved.
Body fat and waist-to-height ratios decreased. The leisure-time
physical activity increased for a year
after the intervention. (2) Vancouver Spine Care Centre makes
treatment plans for Vancouver chiropractic patients of all ages that includes
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter how
old it is!
