How Chiropractic Care Can Help with Aging
By Donna Stark
I love receiving gifts, but I have received a couple in the past few months that I wish I could return to sender. These are the ones that have come from the new "guest" in my life, the friend that I knew would show up, but never really prepared for. The friend that goes by the name "Aging," but is also known as "Getting Old." I was actually OK with the first few gifts I received, such as the extra wrinkles on my face and the surprise pop of color that came with those gray hairs. But the other gifts? Well, as I said, if I could return them I would! Getting old certainly brings with it a variety of conditions and health issues that nobody is ever caught putting on their gift wish list ... things such as chronic pain, arthritis, loss of mobility, and increased risks for disease and illnesses. Things that I am definitely planning on re-gifting, no matter how rude that is, and fortunately for me, I have the perfect person in mind to drop them off to ... my local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic!
Chiropractic Care can Help the Aging Process
When it comes to aging, the first thing people often think of is how their appearance will change, but there is so much more to the process than saggy skin and thinning hair. The aging process can have serious impacts on the function of your body and most definitely to the quality of your life. But don't worry! The chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic are right around the corner and they are ready to help you get rid of those unwanted gifts!
- The gift of limited movement - Regular chiropractic care has been shown to increase a patient's range of motion in the spine and the extremities, which will allow you to become more engaged with your environment and with those around you. So if you like to garden, golf, or play with your grandchildren, you will love giving this gift away.
- The gift of degeneration - When the spine is not properly aligned, it can lead to other parts of the body experiencing unnatural wear and tear of the joints. This can lead to pain and limited mobility and flexibility. Chiropractic care can slow down this process of degeneration by reducing the extra stress that is placed on the joints.
- The gift of pain - Chiropractic care has long been recognized for providing a safe and effective course of treatment for those struggling with pain. By avoiding the use of prescription medications and invasive procedures, the adjustments that your chiropractor provides allows the body the opportunity to heal itself.
