Want To Get Healthy As You Age? Then Exercise!

Getting Older Makes Exercise Even More Effective

Getting older does not make it less important to exercise, it makes it much more important. Staying healthy as you age age involves many things, but one of the primary ways to maintain health into retirement is staying physically active. Not only does participating in a sport you find enjoyable maintain your positive mental health but is also keeps you physically healthy much longer. Exercise has great effects on your body including lowering your blood pressure, maintaining a proper weight, and improving the health of your entire cardio-pulmonary system. From an orthopedic standpoint exercise has benefits outside of the ones we typically think about.

Even Roller Hockey Can Be Great For Seniors

The AAOS is one of many orthopedic associations that say that great bone health is directly associated with exercise. Of course it is important to exercise safely and not take part in sports that are unnecessarily dangerous or completely unfamiliar. That is not to say that you should avoid starting to play roller hockey as you get older. Instead of jumping right in, start slowly by learning to rollerblade and learning the basics before becoming competitive. Of course you can do things to reduce the dangerous elements of almost any sport. Roller hockey players should wear the appropriate protective devices like helmets, arm and knee guards, and mouth guards.

Joint Replacement Shouldn’t Stop You From Fun

Even if you are a person who has been through a joint replacement surgery of your knees or hip, you can still take part in many sports. Other than not going for an afternoon run, most joint replacement patients are not subject to any restrictions. Of course if you fall into this category you may want to limit yourself to lower impact sports but you don’t always have to. If you have dreams of winning the local roller hockey championship you probably still can. You should make an appointment with an orthopedic physician to make sure you’re ready, but don’t let it stop you from learning about the neighborhood seniors roller hockey league.
