No matter who you are, where you live, or what you do for work, all of us have one thing in common. Aging. Time passes and birthdays seem to fly by. Suddenly, though we may feel the same, we look in the mirror and see an older version of ourselves.
It can be alarming. Not so much in just physical appearance, but often in the way we feel as we age. With each year that passes, we may gain new aches and pains. Research shows that older adults are less likely to seek treatment for pain than their younger counterparts, partly because they believe that it is just a normal part of aging.
The fact is that while we may be prone to cellular breakdown which can lead to injury, being in pain or aching all the time, at any age – isn’t normal and can most likely be corrected. A 2009 Study confirmed that older adults receiving chiropractic adjustments experienced less disability and pain compared to patients not receiving chiropractic care.
You do not have to resign yourself to a life lived in pain. Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, drug-free way to treat the body in a gentle manner that allows healing to take place naturally.
Chiropractic can help with joint pain, back pain, neck pain, osteoarthritis, scoliosis, and even spinal degeneration as well as a whole host of other ailments.
Adjustments work best when combined with proper nutrition and regular exercise. Kaster Chiropractic can help guide you in all aspects of health. Studies prove that seniors who stay active and participate in physical activity had substantially less pain than non-active adults.
Exercise to improve balance, gait, and strength can help prevent falls that lead to injury and pain. Additionally, supplementation to keep bones, muscles, and ligaments strong and healthy also can contribute to the prevention of accidents and injuries.
Chiropractic care is about more than just treating pain. It allows you to live a high quality more fulfilling life because you feel better and are able to do more.
