In America, the average life expectency is reported to be 78 for males and 83 for females. The question is, "Are American living full, active, and healthy lives as they age?"
Having an active lifestyle is important for aging and maintaining your independence. Staying fit and mobile can help stop and manage chronic conditions that are found in seniors. A moderate level of physical activity can improve your balance, endurance, and bone strength!
As we age, people are likely to develop injuries, aches, and pains. We at Capital Sports Medicine are committed to helping you prevent those injuries. We do this by reducing the risk of falls, injury, and disability. We figure out where you are strong, and areas where your mobility can increase. These findings will help us figure out the best exercises for you to achieve the things that you want to do. Here are a couple things that you might run into as you age.
Osteoarthritis - deteriorating cartilage in the joints
Spinal stenosis - narrowing of the canal in the vertebrae impinging on the nerve roots causing pain and numbness
Degenerative meniscal tear
Repetitive strain injuries
