Senior Citizens And The Benefits Of Chiropractic El Paso, TX.

When the golden years arrive you may expect some discomfort and loss of mobility. Age and aging can be hard on the body. But there are ways to feel better. Regular fitness, proper diet, and chiropractic can keep your golden years moving and in tip-top shape.

Chiropractic & The Benefits For Seniors

The benefits of chiropractic for seniors can be considerable, including:

1. Pain relief.

If you are experiencing pain due to spinal or joint issues, chiropractic can help. Chiropractic care focuses on providing pain relief without the need for prescription medications or surgery.

Research has demonstrated the effectiveness of chiropractic for pain relief. In fact, one study showed that chiropractic was considerably more effective than prescribed medications. It is unfortunate that many seniors assume that their pain is here to stay—when it may be reduced or eliminated completely through regular chiropractic care.

2. Better balance.

Seniors who are suffering from balance and coordination issues often have problems with the cervical spine, the technical term for the neck. When degenerative disc disease or other injuries disrupt the function of the mechanoreceptors located in the neck—responsible for sending to the brain important information related to balance—then problems with balance can result.

Chiropractic adjustments and other related therapies are quite effective in treating neck injuries and degenerative disc disease. Regular adjustments from your chiropractor may be enough to help you get your balance back.

3. Improved range of motion.

Injuries and aging can lead to a loss of range of motion, both in the spine and in the extremities. Fortunately, chiropractic care is designed to help you regain range of motion.

Your chiropractor has a variety of treatment methods to heal existing injuries while also improving range of motion. It may take several treatments to achieve the results you want, but a few visits to the chiropractor are well worth the increased range of motion you will enjoy.

4. Reduces normal wear and tear on the joints.

The spine and joints need to be aligned to minimize wear on discs, bones and other tissues. When you go for an extended period of time with a misaligned spine, it will increase the rate that your joints wear down.

One of the major benefits of chiropractic care is the way it keeps your whole body in alignment. As long as alignment is maintained, wear is minimized. Of course, alignment is lost in day-to-day life, but you can get it back by visiting the chiropractor again.

5. Keeps you healthy.

Chiropractors are known for adjusting spines. An aligned spine helps the body function at its peak. But chiropractors do more than adjustments. They focus on improving your overall health.

When you visit your chiropractor, he or she will ask you a number of questions and listen to your story to better understand the challenges you are dealing with. Once the chiropractor understands your situation, he or she will design an overall treatment plan designed to help you be as healthy as possible. Seniors that get regular chiropractic care often say they feel much better than they did before—which allows them to do more of the things they love to do.
