Chiropractic care is a component of longevity and a healthy life.

Chiropractic care is a natural treatment for the discomforts and ailments that increase as we age. Regular chiropractic treatment helps you stay active and enjoy life, even if you have an injury or pain. Chiropractic treatment can even lower one’s risk of falls by improving flexibility and range of motion.

Reduces pain and increases life quality

The wear and tear we put on our bodies can cause discomfort and pain over the years. Some may even find themselves dealing with a chronic condition that they developed. Being able to manage pain can greatly increase quality of life. Chiropractic care addresses the root of the pain rather than masking it with medication. Chiropractic Considerations for Older Adults | ChiroHealthUSA 

Ease the discomfort of a sedentary lifestyle

As people spend years working, they often face discomfort and injuries due to repetitive movements, sitting for extended periods, and living a mostly inactive life. Chiropractic care can treat neck and back pain that may be experienced by sitting for long periods of time. By improving your posture, you can prevent pain caused by activities like leaning over a desk or computer.

It helps you stay in the game

A big part of good health is staying active. Exercises that promote core strength and balance (like dancing, yoga, or tai chi) can help prevent falls while resistance and strength training (lifting weights or resistance bands) can increase bone density. Chiropractic treatments can increase one’s mobility by loosening tight muscles, aligning joints, and increasing flexibility.

Deeper, longer sleep

Older adults under chiropractic care experience lower amounts of pain and gain increases in mobility. That in turn increases a person’s sleep quality. Chiropractic can reduce muscle tension and relax the body, which leads to improved sleep cycles. A chiropractor can even suggest more comfortable sleeping positions based on the alignment of your bone structure. There is a growing body of research showing chiropractic care is beneficial in treating sleep apnea. 

Stay Physical

Physical activity can lower your risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and some forms of cancer. Physical activity can also help improve your mood and cognitive functions like decision making and learning. 

Below are videos and activities that can
help you stay young and healthy!

Stay Social

Where to begin? Social activity and physical activity! Social isolation poses health risks to people aged 65 and older, linked with issues such as obesity, heart disease, depression, and risks for Alzheimer’s. Staying social is key in reducing the risk of dementia. 

Stay Young

Surveys show that the older people get, the younger they feel. However, despite this attitude of youthful spirit, a report from the Pew Research Center found that many older people are concerned with issues surrounding health and wellness, including dementia, memory loss, serious illness, and loneliness. How can the 50+ crowd continue to reap the benefits of youth even as they age in face of these problems?
