Taking care of yourself and maintaining your health are important. It's the difference between running along the beach with your grandchildren and using a walker struggling to take a step. Proper spine and body maintenance can keep active into advanced age so your golden years are something to celebrate!
What is it that truly makes a person look "old?" A stiff, bent, and stooped posture is often the answer. Regardless of your facial appearance, if you walk stooped over and stiffly, you simply look old regardless of your chronological age.
The spine provides for the upright posture that is linked to full body mobility and vitality. Chiropractic adjustments align the spine to help keep it mobile and free from problems in the joints and extremities.
A healthy routine including exercise, a good diet, and regular chiropractic care is important for preventing osteoporosis, heart disease, and arthritis. Chiropractors are trained in a variety of spinal adjusting techniques appropriate for older patients. In the later years of life, the importance of chiropractic care cannot be overemphasized. Talk to your chiropractor about the potential benefits of chiropractic care in your senior years.
