In our last post, we discussed the benefits fitness can have on your body as you get older. To keep yourself strong and mobile, it’s essential to exercise your hips, shoulders, legs, and back while following it up with a stretch.
Now, in the second part of our three-part series, we’ll discuss whether or not chiropractic care is important for a healthy senior lifestyle.
Should You Visit a Chiropractor?
Countless studies have shown the benefits chiropractic care can have on your body at any age. Whether you’re an infant, a high schooler playing sports, a working adult, or a retired senior enjoying life, it’s always a good idea to visit a chiropractor.
As we get older, our range of motion begins to decrease, but fortunately, this doesn’t have to be the case. Routinely seeing your chiropractor can help you increase your range of motion so you can get back to doing what you love most, like golfing, walking, gardening, and spending time with family and friends.
Now, what if you’re not experiencing issues with your range of motion? Well, whether you’ve endured an injury, have an on going nagging condition like arthritis, neckpain, migraines, or the ever so popular shoulder issue chiropractic care is highly effective in pain management throughout your body.
What Is The Process?
After scheduling an assessment appointment at ProActive Health, your chiropractor will spend time with you to learn more about the pain or issues you are currently facing. After reviewing your symptoms and goals, your chiropractor will create a plan for you to address your concerns to get back to living a more proactive lifestyle.
Once the assessment is over, your chiropractor will schedule a time to meet with you on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis.
Partaking in consistent chiropractic care has led to seniors reporting several benefits and an increase in wellbeing. Seniors have said they experienced a better quality of sleep, improved mood, and increased overall energy. Note that these benefits are not limited to only seniors.
