Middle age the time to pay more attention to your health

  1. 1. http://www.hqbk.com/ 1-718-769-2521 Middle Age - The Time to Pay More Attention to Your Health Staying fit in middle age can help protect your health in old age. An advanced healthcare center could help with this. The health needs of middle-aged people are complex. They have long passed the vibrant stage of youth and are in the final stages of adulthood, hastening towards old age. The wear and tear experienced by the body in all these years of existence begins to make its presence felt. The bones begin to show signs of overuse and the nerves and muscles get weaker. It’s the joints of the body that are particularly vulnerable. Arthritis is a major concern, with almost half of the elderly being affected by it, probably as a result of an active life of sports and activity. Arthritis affects regular walking and thereby interferes with routine activities. Weight management is very essential to reduce the load placed on the knees. Exercising on a regular basis is important. Fall Prevention http://www.hqbk.com/ 1-718-769-2521
  2. 2. http://www.hqbk.com/ 1-718-769-2521 The risk of falls also keeps increasing as you grow older. Accentuating this risk is osteoporosis - the lowering of bone mass with age - which affects women more. Osteoporosis, though, is not directly related to the ageing process. A healthy lifestyle can prevent the onslaught of osteoporosis or reduce its effects. Each year, over a third of adults aged 65 or more experience at least one fall. In many of these cases, weakness as a result of osteoporosis is the cause of fall. The fact that 20% to 30% of people who fall experience decreased independence and mobility makes fall prevention for middle-aged individuals very important. Before they reach old age, they need to manage their health and habits to prevent falls and promote quality of life when they reach the final stage of their lives. Regulating alcohol and soda intake as well as foods having significant acidic content, avoiding smoking, and consuming foods rich in calcium can help strengthen the bones.
