Aging is a natural process that everyone goes through. As you get older, your body experiences a variety of changes. Your hair begins to thin or gray, your senses start declining, and natural wear-and-tear takes a toll on your joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
As you age, you’re also more likely to suffer from health problems, including:
You might also notice a change in your libido and energy levels.
Though there’s no way to prevent these problems entirely, investing in chiropractic care helps encourage whole-body wellness and lowers your risk of problems that may cause pain or other uncomfortable symptoms down the line.
Chiropractic care takes a hands-on, drug-free approach to improve your whole body health and well-being. Your nervous system controls all aspects of your body. However, if your vertebrae are out of position or misaligned — a condition known as subluxation — it can cause pain and affect your body’s ability to function.
Chiropractic adjustments correct subluxation and realign your spine, a process that can improve blood flow and nerve sensation throughout your entire body. Chiropractic adjustments may also increase your flexibility and mobility — two factors that can help limit pain and improve your overall quality of life.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, Integrated Body and Medicine offers:
Supplements like calcium, vitamin B12, vitamin D, and vitamin E are thought to encourage healthy aging. Following a physical exam and review of your medical history, your provider can recommend supplements that align with your individual needs.
If you’re stressed out, tense, or anxious you’re also more likely to suffer from inflammation and other age-related health problems. Massage therapy encourages circulation and relieves inflammation while promoting a sense of peace.
Your daily habits directly affect your physical health. Your provider may recommend eating a healthy, well-balanced diet, exercising more regularly, or getting more sleep. Oftentimes, minor adjustments like these are enough to address the symptoms of aging and can help you feel better.
