In our last post, we discussed some of the benefits senior citizens can enjoy with chiropractic care in Wallingford. These benefits included pain relief, increased balance and coordination and an increased range of motion, all of which lead to a better quality of life. But if you think the benefits of chiropractic care for seniors ends there, you are sadly mistaken. Here are even more benefits that come with regular chiropractic adjustments.
A Decrease in Joint Degeneration
A misaligned spine is much like a wheel on a car that is misaligned. A misaligned wheel will wear out prematurely, as will your spine if not properly treated. All moving parts will wear down with time, there is no way around that fact, but a balanced spine will degenerate at a slower pace.
Decrease the Chances of Falling
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 90 percent of the nearly one million bone fractures that occur annually among senior citizens are due to falls. But as we already know, chiropractic care increases flexibility, strength, mobility and balance, thus reducing the risks of falls.
Once senior citizens enjoy these benefits of chiropractic care, they enjoy an increase in well-being. For example, those who receive chiropractic care sleep better at night, report they have more energy, are better able to take care of themselves and enjoy doing all the things they thought they had to give up on.
