Age matters. 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 matters and gets us to pay attention to our bodies
as it changes with age. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center cares for Paramus chiropractic patients’ bodies usually 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,

Paramus chiropractor realizes pain is usually
what brings Paramus chiropractic patients to our practice, and Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is prepared to help
the aging body regain some fitness and pain relief.
PEAK FITNESS DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE
Remember your 20s’ body?
Researchers explain that physical fitness peaks at about
20 years of age and remains there until the
early 30s. That is when the fitness levels start to drop
steadily into old age. The good news is that those who have the
best fitness levels in their 20s typically stay
physically healthy and use less healthcare services during
their lives. Adolescence is the most important phase 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
teen years. BMD is the main influence in
whether a person acquires osteoporosis and may feel
its complications in later life.
Physical activity and nutrition are factors that teens
have the ability to influence the building of the
best bodies they can for their future. (1) Do they?
Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center recognizes that adolescent teens do not
think about these things. The teen years have many other distractions
demanding their attention!
HOW CAN WE HELP Paramus 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 encourage them to move early in life. One study set
up competition among student groups outfitted with
pedometers and monitored their steps for 12 weeks. Students in this
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 decreased. The leisure-time
physical activity improved for a year
after the intervention. (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center devises
treatment plans for Paramus chiropractic patients of all ages that incorporates
nutrition and exercise suggestions to get the most out of your body no matter its age!
