The Aging Spine

The normal part of the aging process involves a deterioration of tissues, especially in the spine area. The deterioration process occurs to each people over a period of time and the level varies from individual to individual. The reason for this is not fully clear yet, however, a history of spinal stress and abuse (such as years of hard labor/ wear and tear or years of prolonged sitting) accelerates the aging process.

What Benefits Does Chiropractic Care Provide For The Maturing Adult?

Chiropractic care provides a number of benefits designed for maturing adults and that includes the following: 

  • Spinal and extremity pain relief
  • Decreased stiffness and muscular spasms
  • Increased mobility and range of motion
  • Decreased tissue inflammation
  • Increased joint function

Chiropractic treatments maintain the motion and function of the joints in the spine area. Our treatments maintain spinal biomechanics to minimize the stress associated with the degenerative changes that occur with age. Your spine can be viewed as any other moving structure, that is why it is important to treat and maintain your spine health.
