As we get older, we all begin to notice more aches and pains in our joints, our muscles, and our bones. It’s part of getting older, older people are more likely to experience body pains than those in their teens, or early 20s. Our bones begin to weaken, and our joints finally start showing the wear and tear from the cumulative stress that they have carried over the years. If you’ve seen some of the latest videos on our Facebook page, you’ll know that this month’s theme is small changes, big results! Chiropractic care may seem like a small change, but it can have a big effect on your health and well-being. Here’s some ways that chiropractic care can help in your later years.
Ways That Chiropractic Care Can Help
Chiropractic care is known for helping with joint pain, muscle pain, and alignment of your body. These benefits also apply to chiropractic care on the elderly. Each treatment plan is carefully curated for your body’s specific needs, and can be taken with a gentler approach.
A common ailment that affects older people is arthritis, chiropractic care may help alleviate pain and tension caused by the arthritis which can make getting out and about just that bit easier!
Reducing mobility issues is also a key benefit of chiropractic care. As we get older, our bodies become stiffer and more rigid, regular chiropractic sessions can allow your body to move more freely and easily, keeping you active well into your later years.
A study by AgeUK found that over 250,000 people over the age of 65 were admitted into hospital as a result of a fall every year. Chiropractic care can help align your spine leading to a better balance. Stretches used in conjunction with adjustments can help you to be more mobile and able to stay on your feet, potentially reducing your chances of a fall.
