Chiropractic and the Aging Process

 

Lots of research documents the benefits of chiropractic care, not only for back and neck pain, but as a complementary health care option to maintain proper functioning of all your body parts. And while regular chiropractic care can enhance everyone’s lifestyle, consider how chiropractic care improves the overall quality of life for those enjoying their “Golden Years.”

A September 2004 document titled Chiropractic and Geriatrics: Care for the Aging, submitted by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) to the White House Conference on Aging, provides a number of significant reasons why the senior population should integrate chiropractic care as a component of their health care. The report concludes that:


“In a rapidly aging society, doctors of chiropractic, (along with other health professionals) are well suited to provide optimal health care to this important segment of our society and assist them in maintaining active, quality-based lifestyles.”

Active aging!

Seniors who receive regular chiropractic care often enjoy greater flexibility, balance and more active lifestyles.

Seniors who receive regular chiropractic care often report the following benefits:
  • Relief of acute and chronic spinal and extremity pain
  • Decreased muscle stiffness and spasms
  • Increased sense of balance and coordination
  • Decreased severity of arthritic pain
  • Increased flexibility
  • Improved movement and function
  • Decreased risk of injury due to falls
  • Increased sense of well being
  • Increased energy

When you’re able to do all the things you love (play golf/tennis, garden, spend quality time with your family/friends, etc.), life is far more enjoyable and a lot less lonely. Don’t compromise your ability to live your life feeling happy and healthy. Make an appointment to improve your life by coming in for an evaluation and talking to us about your health care concerns. They matter to us as much as they matter to you!
