Healthy Ageing and Chiropractic Care
This video highlights how Chiropractic Care can benefit older adults who tend to favour more traditional medical practice.
We take a closer look at a couple of recent studies that indicate how Chiropractic care can have a protective role in preserving functional ability.
Research has shown us that Chiropractic Care can really make a big different to health, function and quality of life as you age.
With age comes wisdom but age can also come with problems.
Older adults may face memory loss, frailty, falls, arthritis, visceral and metabolic disorders, depression and anxiety, hearing and vision impairments, functional decline and a host of other problems. However it doesn’t have to be an inevitable downhill health spiral.
There is such a thing as healthy ageing – your choices and actions can postpone or even reduce some of the undesirable affects of ageing.
The Goal of healthy ageing is to maintain physical and mental health avoid diseases and disorders and maintain active and independence. Healthy Ageing does require some effort on your part but the results can be very rewarding and give you some control over your ageing experience.
Chiropractic care is an essential corner stone of health ageing.
This is because Chiropractors are in a unique position to help you maintain and even improve your overall function, health and quality of life.
A study from 2009 revealed that older patients receiving regular chiropractic adjustments developed ‘significantly less’ disability and pain when compared to patients who didn’t receive chiropractic care.
