Let’s face it, people are living longer than ever before in history. While many people equate aging and pain, illness and decreased mobility, chiropractic care is a way to reduce your risk your risk of feeling old as you’re growing old.
Pain reduction. Many seniors complain of chronic back and neck pain. Chiropractic care is one of the safest and most effective ways to reduce the pain and discomfort caused by spinal abnormalities. Pain relievers merely treat symptoms; they don’t alleviate causes.
Improved range of motion. Chiropractic care helps the spine to remain flexible, which keeps seniors active longer and doing things they enjoy, such as gardening, golfing and dancing.
Improved Mood. Many seniors display ill temper because of their overall health. It’s difficult to be happy when you’re in pain. Chiropractic care helps to improve musculoskeletal functions and general feelings of well-being, leaving many seniors happier and more contended.
Decreased joint degeneration. A misaligned spine causes increased wear and tear on spinal joints, bones, and ligaments. This can lead to a breakdown in overall function. Chiropractic adjustments correct these misalignments, reducing spinal stress.
Better coordination and balance. Chiropractic care helps to improve mobility, coordination, and balance resulting in fewer falls and the resulting trips to the hospital.
Chiropractors are uniquely suited to help older patients maintain their independence longer. They do this by improving overall body function and suggesting health and lifestyle choices to improve the quality of life for our aging population.
