Chiropractic care is extremely important for the maturing and elderly adult because of the dramatic changes that occur in the spine with increasing age. As we age, spinal discs, facet joints, ligaments, muscles and other spinal tissues become weaker, less hydrated, more fibrotic, and less able to withstand normal stresses. As a result, spinal pain from spinal degeneration (arthritis) becomes more prominent, tissue injury from relatively benign events occurs, and the time to heal from injuries increases.
Through the use of gentle spinal mobilizations and the incorporation of stretching and exercise programs, spinal pain is reduced, spinal stresses are decreased, flexibility and mobility are improved, and degeneration is minimized.
Routine chiropractic care has a number of benefits which are especially important for maturing adults. Some of the benefits include: neck, back and extremity pain relief, decreased stiffness and muscular spasms, increased mobility and range of motion, increased balance and coordination, decreased arthritis and arthritic joint pain, minimized spinal stress and subsequent degeneration and minimized risk of fall related injuries. Routine chiropractic care results in increased energy and an overall sense of well being.
