The Elderly And Chiropractic Care
It is common knowledge that throughout life we go through minor or even major injuries. But nature – being as powerful as it is – we heal. However, we rarely heal 100%.
So decade by decade small problems accumulate and linger. As we age we experience more disability or reduced ability. Aging specialists have determined that INFLAMMATION is the principal cause of aging. Reducing inflammation is how to delay this process. Chiropractic care helps to reduce inflammation.
Chiropractic is known worldwide as a profession that helps restore ability, prevents disability, and eliminates much of the pain that could potentially ruin our days, our months, our lives. The reason people have learned to appreciate and respect that special role chiropractors bring to our families and to the ones that we love that are aging, is to help them live more meaningful active lives and reduce their overall need for medication. Truly a good thing!
Some of the most common conditions that the elderly suffer, yet can have much relief and reduce much medications, are as follows:
- Degenerative Arthritis
- Slipped discs
- Numbness in the hands, arms or legs
- Digestive disorders
- Headaches and migraines
- Neck pain and back pain
- Shoulder pain
- Knee pain and wrist pain
How does chiropractic help the elderly? By performing spinal manipulation, or adjusting of the bones of the spine to bring back normal or near normal function of these joints.
Also, spinal misalignments affect nerves causing pain and internal organ dysfunction. Making gentle and necessary corrections help relieve these issues or even restore proper function like constipation.
And even though much of what we suffer as we get older may never be restored, it doesn’t mean we have to be suffering all the time and live with increasing impairment and disability. That is the promise that Chiropractic can deliver.
I like this expression: “Sick and tired of being sick and tired?” Chiropractic maybe the solution you have been looking for. Like they also say: “Chiropractic brings years to life and life to years.”
Yours in Health,
