Regular chiropractic care helps maintain good mobility, however as the body ages it is expected that years of wear and tear may have some ill effects that manifest as we get older.
Muscle, joint and ligament stiffness interferes with the normal functioning of the joints. This may result in pain, illness, injury and even breakdown. Older bodies are susceptible to muscle imbalance, poor posture, arthritis, joint fixation, and loss of the ability to walk correctly if at all.
Chiropractic can help to maximise movement, balancing of joints and muscles within the body’s capability. Chiropractic methods are safe as they are non-surgical and drug free thus reducing your reliance on medicines. Of course the more sever the damage the more difficult it is to provide lasting benefits however there is still potential for maintaining a reasonable amount of mobility and function and preserving what mobility and function remains. The message is to adopt a preventative managed program of care. See your chiropractor for information on exercise, posture and mobility. It is important that you maintain your body’s ideal weight with a good diet, an appropriate exercise regime, and have relax and regular rest. If you need help, please ask.
