You’ve heard it before: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. As we age, the likelihood of degeneration of joints, random aches and pains, arthritis, and various injuries increases. While we’ve yet to locate a magical fountain of youth, taking care of yourself goes a long way toward warding off age-related problems and preventing injury.
In particular, once you reach about age 60 your joints and discs of your spine will often begin to degenerate. You might begin to have trouble sleeping, experience a constant achiness, or experience stiffness and lack of mobility. In some cases the pain can grow beyond “achiness” and become debilitating.
Chiropractic care can offer solutions for several important reasons…
We offer minimally invasive techniques. Other medical treatments for back pain can be quite invasive, even involving surgery. These techniques are uncomfortable for anyone, at any age, but can be particularly rough on older patients due to the reduced capacity for healing as we age.
With chiropractic care, you won’t have to suffer through inconvenient down time after treatments. You can leave our office and get back to your regularly scheduled activities.
You will reduce your need for prescription painkillers. No one wants to live in constant pain, so prescription painkillers are often the go-to solution. Of course, these medications can also become addictive and carry other serious side effects. Seeking chiropractic care can alleviate the need for these drugs, and potentially spare you from more serious complications down the road.
It works. Simply put, chiropractic care works. Research has shown that chiropractic care in older patients actually produces superior results in relieving low back pain, compared to other forms of medical care.
To experience the difference for yourself, give us a call. We can help you ward off age-related aches and pains, or address ongoing problems safely and comfortably.
