Health and Exercise

The National Institute of Health has stated that “people of all ages and physical conditions benefit from exercise and physical activity.” When we are younger, we all know that we should exercise regularly, though our reasons are usually things like looking better in our clothes, having muscles to show off, or being able to eat what we want without gaining weight. As we age, exercise becomes more important and the reasons become less self-centered. As our bodies age, exercise keeps all of the bodies organs and systems working better. Many people report improvement in arthritis, heart and circulation, emphysema, and back pain. Even if movement is difficult, some kind of exercise is beneficial. A trained physical therapist, like those employed by Midas Creek Home Health Care, can customize an exercise routine for even those patients who may be bed or home bound. Exercise is good for your health, no matter what your age or fitness level maybe.
