5 Benefits Of Chiropractic Care For Seniors

Pain Relief: If you experience back, neck, and other spinal-related conditions, chiropractic treatment is a safe and effective alternative to taking anti-inflammatory medicines and pain relievers. As a Gonstead chiropractor, Dr. Heidi Chiropractic identifies and treats spinal subluxations and evaluates their effect on the central nervous system. As a result, her patients experience pain relief and have the ability to live a more active lifestyle.

Increased Balance and Coordination: Problems with balance and coordination in seniors are typically products of degenerative changes or injury from falls or other mishaps. This is often due to cervical spine misalignment and its effect on sending signals to the brain that are essential for balance and coordination. Chiropractic care can address balance issues and decrease the risk of falls by stimulating joint receptors in the cervical spine.

Decreased Joint Degeneration: Improving joint mobility and decreasing joint degeneration through chiropractic can be equated to getting the wheels on your car aligned to prevent wear and tear on your tires. Just like a car needs regular maintenance, so do our bodies. With regular treatment, Dr. Heidi Chiropractic can normalize your spinal alignment and help to keep the moving parts of your body from wearing out over time. This is particularly helpful if you are prone to arthritis issues.

Improved Range of Motion: If you would like nothing more than to pick up your grandchildren, get back to gardening, or get some extra distance when swinging a golf club, then a visit to Dr. Heidi Chiropractic can make a world of difference in your everyday life. Chiropractic care has been shown to positively impact range in motion in seniors, not only in the spine but also in the extremities.

Overall Quality of Life: When you consider the above-mentioned benefits, there can be no question that such improvement can and does make your overall quality of life better. When you feel good physically, you feel better mentally and emotionally. That is Dr. Heidi Chiropractic’s main goal for her patients. She looks at the whole person and offers guidance and support in many areas that improve your health and well being.
