As Seen On
Chiropractic care is extremely important for the maturing and elderly population. In a lot of cases unless there is some type of injury, symptoms that you are experiencing today have been going on in your body for ten to thirty years and are now showing up. An analogy to this would be a cavity in your tooth causing pain. The tooth pain did not just show up the tooth was rotting for quite some time before the pain finally presented itself. Many seniors are being advised to take medications that are not only not good for you, but are actually causing more damage to your body if you did nothing at all.
During this stage of life, there are significant changes that occur in the spine with increasing age. As we age, spinal discs, facet joints, ligaments, muscles and other spinal tissues become weaker, less hydrated, more fibrotic, and less able to withstand normal stresses of daily living. As a result, spinal pain from spinal degeneration (arthritis) becomes more prominent and the time to heal from injuries increases.
Chiropractic care can help in many ways, by taking into consideration the nature of the aging spine, and slowing and stopping any further degeneration in a safe and effective way. We use gentle adjustments and incorporation of stretching and spinal exercises. Spinal pain is reduced, spinal stresses are decreased, flexibility and mobility are improved, and degeneration is minimized. Seniors are always amazed when they see chronic problems they have been suffering from that are reduced or go away altogether that they have been suffering from for years.
Once again, we focus on how well the nervous system is functioning and healing. By allowing the nervous system to function properly we are addressing the cause of the symptoms and not just pain relief. Treatments which solely focus on pain and other "symptoms" only, are far less effective. We have experience and have treated several people over 100 years old. It is never too late, no matter how bad off you may be, to get your nervous system functioning more efficiently for better tomorrow.
