CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR SENIORS
Are you someone who is advanced in their years and are looking for chiropractic care? As we all know we do not stay young forever. As we age our bodies change. The benefit of chiropractic care for middle aged or elderly people is becoming more common and well-understood. The Vitalign Spine Clinic understands that most people seek care because they are in pain, they can’t do something they want to do or they want to maintain the health that they have. Our senior patients are no different and therefore the principle is the same – properly align the spine so the nerve system can return to full function thus allowing the body to heal. And yes, even if you are 100 years old the body can still heal itself!
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE AGE?
As people age it is more important than ever to take better care of ourselves. Why? Because we just don’t bounce back like when we were kids. It’s just a fact of life. As we age it is common to suffer from arthritis/joint degeneration, decreased flexibility, brittle bones, poor balance and coordination. Our doctors at the Vitalign Spine Clinic customize the care for seniors to address these issues.
If you find yourself sitting out from activities you love and are making excuses such as “it’s just age or I guess I’m just getting old.” If that was true for everyone, why do we see so many healthy 75 years old people on the golf course or running 5k’s with their children or grandchildren? It is true, some of the changes that we experience as we age cannot be avoided, but this doesn’t mean we cannot receive care to slow these processes down and alleviate the symptoms associated with the aging process. Many middle aged – elderly people often times do not want to go to the doctor because they might find out something is wrong with them. A word of advice – the problem will be there regardless. So, find out how we can help early in the process.
Through specific and specialized chiropractic care at the Vitalign Spine Clinic, our doctors will aim to reduce the pain resulting from long- and short-term diseases, enhance balance and stability, and improve each patient’s overall quality of life. As a result, patients receiving chiropractic care have reported less reliance on medications, less pain, a sense of having more control over their own health, and a longer and healthier life in general.
So, if you’re one of the people that wants to continue exercising, playing with grandkids, traveling the world or just maintaining your daily routine without pain, please contact the Vitalign Spine Clinic for an individualized evaluation.
