One thing that we all have in common is that we all have spines! We all have nerves! All of our bodies can benefit from chiropractic care. From newborns to long lived ones! A body at rest will remain at rest, a body in motion will remain in motion. Chiropractic care can help anyone of any age!
Kids have spines, just like adults. Kids also have stresses to their spines, just like adults. Mechanical stresses such as poor posture, heavy book bags, learning to walk, and even the birth process can affect the growing and developing spine. Chemical stresses such as junk food, medications and pollution also affect the body. These stresses on the spine can cause subluxations (nerve interference) which can negatively affect overall health. With gentle, specific chiropractic adjustments, nerve flow is restored, as well as a greater level of health. There are numerous studies that show the benefits of chiropractic for children who suffer from ear infections, allergies, asthma, ADHD, and bed wetting – just to mention a few.
As we age our muscles weaken, our joints become less flexible, and our tissues overall become less hydrated. Decades of wear and tear on our joints lead to arthritis. Our digestive tract also becomes weaker and more susceptible to damage and bleeding. Since these are also common side-effects of anti- inflammatory medications it is important to limit their use. Although the aging process is inevitable, we can do a lot to slow down the process with proper natural prevention.
Chiropractic care and healthy lifestyle habits are the best protection. Once arthritis and degeneration have set it they are not reversible. Chiropractic may help in pain relief, pain management, maintaining function, and in preventing further degeneration. Treatment is gentler according to condition and patient tolerance.
Routine chiropractic care has a number of benefits which are especially important for maturing adults:
- spinal and extremity pain relief
- decreased stiffness and muscular spasms
- increased mobility and range of motion
- increased balance and coordination
- increased sense of well being
- increased energy
- enhanced tissue healing
- decreased tissue inflammation
- increased joint health
- decreased arthritis and arthritic joint pain
- minimized spinal stress and subsequent degeneration
- minimized risk of fall injuries
