Chiropractic is effective care for seniors
Age is the great wrecker of spines. You are lucky if you reach retirement without ever having felt a twinge- most of us will have become aware of the process of aging some time before that. However, as we hit 60 and beyond, the process of bone and muscle loss ramps up, and we feel the effects of aging more keenly. Nowhere more keenly, in fact, than in the joints, which begin to show the years of wear and tear. As your joints ache, you tend to lose mobility, a slippery slope which can lead toward further debilitating pain or outright incapacitation. At Scorca Chiropractic, our goal is to prevent this from becoming your reality. And there is no better time than now to start! Read on to find out how chiropractic helps make old age more comfortable.
Taking care of your joints
Many seniors are hesitant about spinal adjustment because they feel it is too forceful and may exacerbate the problem. This is a misconception; in fact, we are specially trained to manually treat older bodies. We use gentle mobilization techniques to restore function to the spinal joints, helping to realign the spine, reduce pain and improve range of motion. This lead to an increase in overall wellbeing and helps seniors retain their independence in motion and in life.
If you are a senior, or someone caring for a senior, in chronic pain, please don’t accept this suffering! At the very least, pay us a visit, where we can work with you to create a plan that will directly address spinal dysfunction and pain. We work with primary care doctors to add an element of conservative care to your plan that will greatly increase your quality of life. We look forward to hearing from you.
