You Can Maintain Your Mobility As You Age
By Tom Herrin
As we age, many of us expect to lose much of our range of motion. It is what everybody knows about aging. People may walk bent over and have difficulty standing to get out of a chair. We almost feel like we will be literally creaking as we move. Grandparents are supposed to be slow and careful. While there is something to that, it doesn’t have to be that way for everything. If you have found yourself getting older and you're in this situation, a visit to a chiropractor may be what can turn your life around.
It Starts With Your Spine
Gravity is certainly one of our biggest enemies. It constantly works on us. No matter what we do, it will inevitably wear on our muscles and our joints. Those joints will experience stress that eventually tends to result in a joint dysfunction. When this happens, pressure is applied to a nerve. This pressure ends up causing pain. The problem is that most of the time this pain will only get worse without treatment. A chiropractor can provide an adjustment that will help to restore the joint to its proper place and function. This may take one or more treatments, depending on how severe and how long the joint has been injured.
A Natural Treatment
Your chiropractor will do what they do best, relieve your pain without the use of pain medications. The more we learn about those medications, the more concern most of us have. Anytime we can have natural pain relief, we should grab onto it. Your chiropractor will probably suggest some exercises that can support your body and help to increase your range of motion. Regular chiropractic care can help you to maintain that mobility and allow you to enjoy life to a greater degree. Isn’t this the goal we all have?
