Dementia Prevention and Physical Activity in Rock Springs

Prevention is the only available ‘treatment’ for the mind-robbing diseases of cognitive decline and Dementia. In fact, prevention of Dementia in Rock Springs, WY, is just as important as preventing other common chronic conditions that come with aging such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer. But how?

Like these other chronic diseases, regular physical activity plays a key role in stopping the mind from deteriorating. The mind is a terrible thing to waste; and abides faithfully by the rule of ‘use it or lose it’. Many studies have produced reliable data indicating that regular physical activity can help to decrease the risk of cognitive decline. Specifically, aerobic exercise (which increases your heart rate) in middle-aged or older adults has been reported to make significant improvements in thinking, memory and reduced rates of Dementia in Rock Springs.

Note: when referring to ‘aerobic exercise’, it is intended to mean exercise for a sustained period of time, perhaps 20–30 minutes, done several times a week and maintained for at least a year.

One particular study looked at the health behaviors of over 2,000 men in Wales who were followed for 35 years. Of the five behaviors that were assessed (regular exercise, not smoking, moderate alcohol intake, healthy body weight and healthy diet), exercise had the greatest effect in terms of reducing Dementia risk. Overall, people who followed four or five of the above behaviors were up to 60% less likely to develop Dementia.

A recent literature review detailed that 26 out of 27 studies noted a strong link between physical activity levels and cognitive performance in people over 60 years young, suggesting that exercise might be a truly effective way to reduce cognitive decline in later life. Keep in mind that physical exercise does not just mean playing a sport or running. It can also mean a daily activity such as brisk walking, cleaning or gardening. One study found that the risk of Alzheimer’s disease can be reduced by performing daily physical tasks such as cooking and washing up.

It is not surprising that people living with untreated hearing loss are less likely to be physically active, as the effects of social isolation begin to impact daily life. Thus, the increased risk of developing Dementia with untreated hearing loss, along with decreased levels of physical activity are threatening the mental capabilities of older adults in our communities. Regular physical exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle and can help to maintain wellbeing –both physically and mentally.

Engaging in physical activity creates valuable opportunities to socialize with others and can help improve and maintain a person’s independence. It improves self-esteem and mood, which in turn encourages more social engagement, thus contributing to better wellbeing.

"I've been with Dr. Manwarring for several years now. Having a good audiologist is very important to me. I've tried a couple of others, and they just don't seem to fit right with my needs and expectations.I would highly recommend Dr. Manwarring to anyone. Because of him, I have been given quality care, relate well with him, and I know I can depend on him to help me with my hearing aid and hearing loss needs."- Michelle B. 5 star
"They are always professional and friendly. They were able to assist my mother with getting hearing aids that work for her. They knew what type would suit her best. Service is excellent. I would recommend them to everyone who has hearing issues!"- Joan Y. 5 star
"Justin Bateman, the audiologist I worked with for my annual follow up and maintenance. He was so knowledgeable and thorough. He made a minor tweak to my hearing aids to adjust for a slight change in my hearing. It noticeably improved my hearing while wearing my hearing aids. Justin was very pleasant and efficient to deal with. I highly recommend this office."- Kerry W. 5 star
