Can Chiropractic Care Help You While You’re Aging?
If you’re reading this article, you’re aging…and that’s a good thing!
As you age, your body goes through many natural changes, some more frustrating than others, such as graying hair, joint and muscle aches and pains and loss of balance.
People are living longer now than they did years ago…life expectancy today in the United States is about 79 years, as compared to 1920 when the average life expectancy was 54 years old. Most of us will think that’s a positive thing, but with the additional years, we become subject to aging bodies and additional health concerns:
- Poor vision and eye disease
- Heart disease
- Mental health
Falls and Injuries Related to Aging
One of the most prevalent problems for seniors is related to poor balance, which results in falls and minor to severe injuries such as broken bones (hips, spine, legs, and arms) as well as lacerations, head injuries and even death.
Statistics tell us that one third of adults, 65 or older, fall each year. Regular chiropractic care can help eliminate falls by improving balance and coordination. Over the years, we have used (and abused) our joints, bones and muscles, and over time they come out of alignment. Chiropractic adjustments can not only restore them to their proper alignment, but can keep them aligned, functioning correctly and serving us well, as it puts your system back into balance and improves your nervous system function.
Chiropractors are all about whole body wellness…
Not only do chiropractors work to eliminate pain, the other part of their focus is prevention…preventing future problems that will cause you pain in the future.
The beauty of Chiropractic care is:
- It is natural, non-invasive and drug free
- It supports and encourages your body to heal itself
- It keeps your nervous system and spine in alignment, which supports good physical, emotional and mental health
- Your chiropractor can prescribe good ideas for exercise that will strengthen your spine and nervous system and help maintain balance and coordination
- It is safe. It is gentle. It works.
You don’t have to fear or dread growing older, it can be a great time of life, and chiropractic care is one of the best ways to maintain your body so you can enjoy it.
