Age makes a difference. It matters to the body, how it feels, how it moves, how well it
will take each of us into our older years. Age matters and makes us each pay attention to our bodies
as it changes with age. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre cares for Toronto chiropractic patients’ bodies usually 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. Fortunately,
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is here to care for bodies of all ages whenever their owners take them to Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. Your
Toronto chiropractor realizes pain is usually
what gets Toronto chiropractic patients to our practice, and Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is prepared to help
the aging body recover some fitness and pain relief.
PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at around
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
peak fitness levels in their 20s usually stay
physically healthy and need 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 influence in
whether a person develops osteoporosis and may feel
its complications later in life.
Physical activity and nutrition are issues that teens
have control of to build the
best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they?
Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre recognizes that adolescent teens do not
think about these things. The teen years have many other diversions
demanding their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP Toronto 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 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 reduced. The leisure-time
physical activity improved even a year
after the intervention. (2) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre creates
treatment plans for Toronto 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!
