Aging, Joint Pain, and Chiropractic Care

By Donna Stark

One of the most frustrating things about getting older are the aches and pains that inevitably appear in our joints. Joint pain is particularly difficult to deal with because it can significantly impact your ability to care for yourself and engage in the activities that you love to do. Even the simplest of movements are more challenging when you are struggling with pain in your joints. For many people, their quality of life decreases, but not being able to go on a weekend hike isn't the worst of it. If joint pain isn't addressed and treated appropriately, it can lead to serious health concerns that can have lasting consequences.

Aging, Joint Pain, and Chiropractic Care

Throughout every decade of our lives, there are new health issues that we need to face, and unfortunately, joint pain can show up in any one of them. The bad news is that it can be a bear to deal with, but the good news is that there are several things you can do to improve the health of your joints and enjoy life more. Take a look at the following tips that your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic recommend.

  • Exercise daily - You may think that physical activity will only cause your pain to increase, but that's not always the case. Daily exercise, with the right workouts, can actually make it better. And when it comes to joint health, low-impact exercises are the way to go. Swimming, stationary bikes, yoga, stretching, and walking are great examples of what you should be doing. In addition to the cardiovascular benefits you will get from them, they will also reduce the risk of strain and injury to your joints.
  • Maintain a healthy weight - Those extra pounds you have been carrying around aren't only making your clothes feel tighter, they are also adding several pounds of force to your joints! And you know what happens then, right? Pain, deterioration, and possible immobility. However, with your commitment to daily exercise and a healthy diet, you can reduce the risk of that from occurring.
  • Get adjusted - Chiropractic care is a safe and effective approach to treating joint pain. Proper alignment in the body can reduce the stress, strain, and pressure on and around the joints. It can also restore joint function by improving range of motion and reducing the risk of future degeneration.
