Senior Living Enhanced by Chiropractic Care

By Donna Kostiew

For many people, one of the most important aspects of growing older is the ability to maintain their normal activities of daily living. This includes the ability to get out of bed in the morning, take a shower, get dressed, cook, shop, garden, drive … the list of activities can go on and on, but the point has been made. Self-sufficiency is very important for aging seniors (heck, it’s important to us all), but as we age, back pain often becomes more prevalent and the challenge to live normally becomes more difficult.

If there is an older adult in your life who is struggling with pain, discomfort, or joint immobility, or if this sounds an awful lot like you, then it may be time to visit your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic.

Some of the benefits that chiropractic care can provide for seniors (or anyone with a spine) are:

Pain Relief

Chiropractic care is a safe and effective choice for pain relief that also offers many other benefits for older adults. The biggest advantage it has over other treatments is that it is completely drug-free and doesn’t have the many undesirable and unwanted side effects that often come with prescribed medications. As we age, we typically have to increase the amount of prescriptions that are taken on a daily basis … so why add another one that is completely unnecessary?

Improved Range of Motion

Chiropractic care has consistently been shown to increase a patient’s range of motion. Many elderly people find that they struggle day-to-day just to perform the simplest of tasks. With an improved range of motion, they are able to take care of their basic needs, can enjoy their hobbies and family more, and can live the life they want without pain.

Balance and Coordination

A scary, but all too common issue related to the aging process is an increase of falls and injuries that stem from a decreased sense of balance and coordination in the elderly. This is often caused by degenerative changes to the cervical spine and is a major contributor to bone fractures in the elderly. Regular chiropractic adjustments help to restore the patient’s balance and coordination and can slow down the process of joint degeneration. In doing so, the risk of falls, potential injuries, and medical costs are greatly reduced. And that makes everyone happy.

The benefits of chiropractic care can truly change a person’s outlook on life. Feeling good, being able to care for oneself, and having the ability to participate in activities ultimately means living a higher quality of life. Age isn’t just a number, as there can be significant issues that come with it. But there is no age limit to the benefits that can be received from getting regular chiropractic adjustments.
