Senior Citizens and Chiropractic

By Randi Morse

Most people don't want to think about getting old. It's almost like avoiding thinking about aging will help us to avoid aging. Unfortunately, there's absolutely no way to avoid getting older. What we can do is take as good care of our bodies and minds as possible so that we are in good health as we age. Even if you take excellent care of your body, there are certain processes that can affect important functions like fine motor skills and flexibility. It can be extremely difficult for senior citizens to discover that they suddenly are unable to do everything they used to be able to. While it's impossible to stop aging in its tracks, it is possible to utilize chiropractic care to help deal with the side effects caused by aging.

Mobility

Being able to get around, for mobility, is vital for senior citizens who want to remain living independently. Mobility issues pop up often with senior citizens and, in many cases, gradually worsens with time until the senior is forced to utilize a wheelchair. Regular chiropractic care may be able to help a senior citizen retain, or regain, mobility. Gentle spinal manipulation and massage can help awaken the nerves and tendons and can remove joint restrictions that could be causing mobility issues.

Falling

Falling is another common problem senior citizens face, and it is connected to mobility. There are a number of reasons why senior citizens may be more apt to fall than younger people, and one of those reasons is related to posture. Seniors who do not have good posture, or who are unable to adjust their posture to their aging bodies, are more prone to falls.  A chiropractor can help a senior to learn the best way to hold themselves and to walk so that they lessen the possibility of falling.

The Joint Chiropractic has chiropractors that understand how frustrating it can be to grow older and struggle. They utilize the most modern chiropractic techniques to gently manipulate the spine and muscles to help seniors live their best life. The Joint Chiropractic features affordable rates in an effort to accommodate people from all ages, and income levels, of life. The open office hours make it easy to see your local chiropractor at a time that works best for your schedule.
