Remember when you were in your 20s? Researchers say that physical fitness peaks at about 20 years of age and remains high into the early 30s. That is when the fitness levels begin to drop gradually into old age. The good news is that those who have the high fitness levels in their 20s typically stay physically healthy and use 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 built, 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 teenagers have control of to build the best bodies they can for their lifetime. (1) Do they? Mandeville Chiropractic recognizes that adolescent teens don’t think about these things. The teen years have many other distractions demanding their attention!


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 outfitted 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 increased for a year after the intervention. (2) Mandeville Chiropractic creates treatment plans for Mandeville 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!
