Stay Healthy in Your Golden Years With Chiropractic

By Paul Rothbart

People are living longer and this means more older adults. It is estimated that by 2030, 20 percent of the U.S. population will be 65 or older. Longevity is a wonderful thing, but as the body ages, it does tend to develop aches and pains, as well as health problems that can make day-to-day living more challenging. Many of these problems are caused or exacerbated by poor posture and other things that affect the musculoskeletal structure. Getting regular exercise and living a healthy lifestyle are excellent ways to combat these effects of aging. Seeing a chiropractor can also be very helpful.

Chiropractic Help for the Spine and Joints

Aging adults have been standing, sitting, walking, and running for a long time. The spine tends to compress during a lifetime. These compressions can put pressure on vertebrae, causing pain and limiting mobility. As the spine contains the spinal cord, the major nerve pathway from the brain to other parts of the body, pressure on it can cause problems virtually anywhere in the body. Discomfort can come in the form of tingling, numbness, or pain. A chiropractor can find any of these problems with an examination and correct them with adjustments. This can ease the pain and help prevent it from returning. Joints can also become subluxated or develop other problems than can be painful and interfere with your activities. A chiropractor can also take care of these issues.

Chiropractic Help for Sleep

Good sleep is vital for everyone's health. It's restorative to both mind and body, and sleep of insufficient time and quality can cause a variety of health issues. This is certainly true for seniors who are already dealing with the effects of aging. Less than optimal sleep can increase those effects and make them much more difficult to manage. Many chiropractic patients find that regular treatments improve their sleep. A body experiencing less pain relaxes more easily and allows you to fall asleep more quickly and stay asleep. The peace of mind of knowing that your body is functioning properly can also help you sleep.

Chiropractic Help for Anxiety

There are very few people, if any, who have no worries. Anxiety is ubiquitous. Seniors have typical concerns about finances, family, and health. They also have to think about upcoming or current retirement as well as care for their families when they are gone. There are more than a few chiropractic patients who find that regular visits help them better manage anxiety and stress. You want to enjoy the later stages of your life. A chiropractor may help you do that.

Senior citizenship can be a tricky stage of life but it doesn't have to be. Take care of yourself and enjoy those golden years. Consider a visit to The Joint Chiropractic. You don't need an appointment. You may find that regular treatments help make your senior years the best of all.
