For seniors who are experiencing a decrease in their mobility and coordination, chiropractic care may be an effective treatment option for restoring this lost mobility. Lordex Spine Institute of Conroe has significant successes helping older patients remain active and injury-free. Regular chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy can help to correct balance and coordination issues that are due to degenerative changes in the spine or from previous injuries.
As we age, there is an increased risk for injury and pain as muscles and bones weaken. Often seniors struggle with balance and coordination issues that can be linked to degenerative changes in the spine. Chiropractic adjustments help to restore lost coordination by stimulating joint receptors in the neck that stimulates and normalizes joint function for better control and balance.
Some senior patients come to us having been told that aches and pains are just a “normal part of aging”. Dr. Dana says that’s not the case and that chiropractic care can help older adults continue to enjoy an active, pain-free life. Age can increase the risk for falls and balance problems, but studies show that this increased risk may be linked to subluxations in the spine that affect the brain’s ability to easily send and receive messages through the central nervous system. It can make a huge difference in a seniors quality of life.
Chiropractic care is an effective drug-free pain management solution. It safely increases range of motion for the spine and the extremities, increases balance and coordination, and increases whole body health and well being. Also chiropractic adjustments or spinal decompression therapies, if there are more acute low back issues, are beneficial for helping seniors maintain their independence longer.
Chiropractic adjustments are designed to eliminate subluxations and restore correct alignment to the spine, which can lead to balance improvements. By decreasing the risk for falling, chiropractic care also helps seniors maintain a healthy, active and independent lifestyle well into their golden years. Maintaining and normalizing mobility is critical and also helps to reduce joint degeneration and other arthritic changes to the body.
Tradional chiroprasctic care and non surgical spinal decompression is safe for seniors as long as these adjustments are modified to meet a senior’s specific health needs. Dr. Dana recommends all patients undergo a full physical exam and assessment prior to receiving care.
