Top reasons why you should turn to chiropractic for healthy aging:
1. Pain Relief: Chiropractic is one of the most effective and safest forms of health care for spinal health & wellbeing. The spinal joints are closely related to pain receptors and disruptions along the spine can cause increased pain. Chiropractors are trained to identify and treat the spine along with the surrounding soft tissue structures. Research shows that spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) can reduce lower back pain, neck pain, and knee pain.
2. Increase Range of Motion: Chiropractic care can increase the range of motion for the spine and also in the extremities. Increasing your range of motion can positively affect your life in many ways. For some, an increased range of motion will allow people to walk further distances without pain, do housework without discomfort, play a round of golf, or even being able to bend over and pick up your grandchildren.
3. Increased Balance & Coordination; along with decreased fall risk: There are receptors located in the joints of the upper cervical spine that are largely responsible for providing the brain with information for balance and coordination. Chiropractic adjustments can help restore balance and coordination by stimulated the joint receptor in the cervical spine. This helps 'restore' the joint for proper functioning and leads to improved balance and coordination.
4. Increased Health & Well-Being: The spine is important for movement and your overall well-being. Chiropractic restores joint motion to a spine as it become more compressed with age. The adjustments also help increase fluid to your vertebral discs allowing proper nerve function and a decrease in joint pain. A balanced nervous system will help release stress build up in muscles and bones around the back, neck, and extremities. This care can increase your overall feeling of health & well-being.
