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. Satterwhite Chiropractic takes care
of Oxford chiropractic patients’ bodies usually when
they are suffering with back pain or neck pain. When
the body hurts, it’s likely been years of life’s
using the body’s resources up as it ages. Luckily,
Satterwhite Chiropractic is here to care for bodies of all ages whenever their owners bring them to Satterwhite Chiropractic. Your
Oxford chiropractor understands pain is usually
what brings Oxford chiropractic patients to make an
appointment, and Satterwhite Chiropractic is ready to help
the aging body recover some fitness and pain relief.
PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember when you were in your 20s?
Researchers explain that physical fitness peaks at around
20 years of age and stays there into 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’s 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 effects in later life.
Physical activity and nutrition are things that teenagers
have control of to build the
best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they?
Satterwhite Chiropractic recognizes that adolescent teens don’t
think about these things. The teen years have many other diversions
demanding their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP Oxford TEENS BUILD THE BEST
Competition and activity seem to work! The best ways to get teens to as peak a fitness level as imaginable
is to encourage them to move early in life. One study set
up competition among student groups equipped with
pedometers and monitored their steps for 12 weeks. Students in the
study all ended up doing 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 for a year
after the intervention. (2) Satterwhite Chiropractic devises
treatment plans for Oxford 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!
