Senior Care

Many seniors believe that aging and pain go hand-in-hand. While aging is natural, pain is a signal that something is wrong. Diseases like arthritis can cause joint pain and limit movement, but the pain doesn't have to be severe. There are ways to reduce or eliminate it, and one option is to see a chiropractor.

Pain Relief

Pain relief is a common reason to visit a chiropractor. Although people often go for neck or back pain, chiropractors can help with other types of discomfort too. They adjust the spine, which houses nerves that affect the entire body. Proper adjustments can reduce pain by ensuring nerves can send signals to the brain without interference.

Increased Range of Motion

Aging can make joints painful and stiff, limiting movement. When muscles aren't used, they weaken. After chiropractic care, many seniors notice improved movement. For instance, senior golfers often find they can hit the ball farther, and gardeners can work without pain.

Better Balance and Movement

As we age, balance can deteriorate due to changes in the neck's bones and muscles. Specific structures in the cervical spine help maintain balance, but they can weaken over time. Chiropractic care can restore these functions, improving balance and reducing the risk of falls and injuries.

Reduced Joint Degeneration

A misaligned spine can put extra strain on other joints, leading to wear and tear. Poor posture forces other body parts, like the legs and hips, to compensate, causing damage over time. Chiropractic adjustments align the spine properly, reducing strain on joints and improving movement and comfort.

Increased Quality of Life

A 1996 study found that patients who used chiropractic care experienced several benefits compared to those who did not. These benefits included:

  • Less arthritis
  • Increased physical activity
  • Fewer hospital visits
  • Fewer falls

The study also showed that those receiving chiropractic care were less likely to move into a nursing home. Only 5% of patients receiving care moved to a nursing home, compared to 48% of those who did not.

Overview

Chiropractic care is safe and effective for all ages. As we age, it's important to be cautious about medications and treatments. Chiropractic care is beneficial for seniors, athletes, teens, adults, injured individuals, pregnant women, and even babies.
