Routine! Anyone who’s ever had to adhere to a routine knows it can be quite challenging. Having to do something over and over and in line with a schedule may not seem fun but just as when you were a kid being made to eat vegetables, you realize that some things in life are worth the time and effort.
Exercise and good health go hand in hand as engaging in frequent physical activity is an incredible tool for losing and maintaining weight, for lowering the risk of heart disease and developing type 2 diabetes. Exercise is also a great way to strengthen bones and muscles. An adult human has 206 bones which provide support and help the body to move about. Though, they do not achieve this on their own. Muscles and joints pitch in to ensure that people are finely tuned moving machines but with age, bones become weaker due to the loss of density resulting in the increased likelihood of osteoporosis and fractures. The encouraging news is that research has shown that incorporating at least 2 to 3 hours per week of moderately intense forms of exercise as well as doing other strengthening activities can decrease the risk of breaking a bone, decelerate the loss of bone density and reduce joint pain associated with arthritis.
However, looking after your skeletal and muscular systems is important at any age. Thankfully, getting started on a regular exercise journey is made simple with licensed physical therapists who are qualified to assess and recommend the right amount of repetitions, intensity and impact of your workout, enhance your ability to regulate pain and make it easier to stick to a steady routine. Of course, if your bone and muscle health has been slightly neglected, chiropractors will be available to offer treatment alternatives to healing and aligning the body’s musculoskeletal structure, particularly the back and spine, without something as drastic as surgical intervention.
