Spinal health is a central priority for seniors
And with a rapidly aging population in the United States, it’s time for everyone to listen up. The amount of people in our population over-65 is projected to more than double by 2050. That may trigger some vague fear of mortality, but it should inspire you to think about the state of your spine. Spinal degeneration is a leading cause of disability in our senior populations. Much of this is inevitable- age is the perfect storm that batters against the upright stormwall of our spine. The vertebrae begin to lose density, while intervertebral discs begin to give in to the persistence of wear and tear. No matter what age you are, it’s time to start looking out for your spine.
How chiropractic helps seniors protect their spines in Bridgewater
Chiropractic is about helping you feel your best, no matter what age you are. But seniors in particular can benefit from the assistance of chiropractic in the following ways:
- Reduced spinal stress: gentle, hands-on modalities reduce intradiscal pressure, and help nutrient-rich blood reach embattled areas to faciliate healing.
- Pain relief in the spinal joints: adjustments help maintain spinal alignment and prevent painful nerve impingement.
- Improved posture: posture is a signal way of preventing further spinal degeneration. We set the conditions necessary for your body to maintain good posture and show you how to achieve good posture no matter what activity you are doing.
- Enhanced balance and coordination: helps prevent injuries and allows you to exercise more confidently.
