Don't Lose Your Mobility as You Age!
By Donna Stark
There are a lot of things that get better with age ... a nice bottle of wine, a decent pair of jeans, the fabulous Jennifer Lopez ... but our mobility? Well, that could definitely use some help. Too often we take our daily movements for granted and it isn't until we can't use our joints anymore that we realize exactly how dependent we are on them. In fact, it would be wise to give your mobility a little extra attention because good mobility is key to maintaining healthy joints, and healthy joints are key to maintaining a pain-free body. There are several ways you can show your joints some love, but the most effective is routine chiropractic care at The Joint Chiropractic.
The aging process certainly isn't very kind to us, is it? And if we don't stay on top of it, our bodies will suffer in the long run with diminished strength, loss of flexibility, decreased range of motion, and limited mobility. It's important to stay proactive with your mobility because brushing your teeth shouldn't bring tears of pain to your eyes, picking something up from the floor shouldn't be excruciating, and holding your grandchild shouldn't bring discomfort. Think I'm kidding? Take a look at what can accompany poor mobility.
- Joint impingement, stiffness, and weakness
