I came across this article (http://www.investorplace.com/20701/physical-activity-beneficial-at-advanced-ages/) regarding patients who are older. Apparently, older people who stay active and are most likely to have better vitality later in life into their 80's and beyond a new study shows.
We have many people in our practice family who stay active and many still compete athletically. This compares with previous generations who were more sedentary and as they got older, developed many health conditions secondary to deconditioning. Check out the article. Very thought provoking
