The aging process makes people vulnerable to a variety of
musculoskeletal conditions that can be treated either entirely or partially
through chiropractic care. Muscle strength tends to decreases as people age. A
lifetime of use can make our joints and spines stiff, osteoporosis can weaken
bones leading to falls, and serious fractures and the aging nervous system
reduces sensation and slows reaction times.
As we age, the natural cushioning between the joints wears
away, allowing bones to rub against each other. This causes pain and
inflammation in the joint. This condition is called osteoarthritis.
Degenerative Disc Diseases
The spine can stiffen and the discs become damaged. The 23
discs in the spinal column act as shock absorbers, cushioning the area between
neighboring vertebrae. They also hold the vertebrae of the spine together and
act as cartilaginous joints that allow for slight mobility in the spine. Injury
and aging causes the connective tissue surrounding each disc to become brittle.
This can lead to a variety of physical problems, including limited range of
motion, stiffness, and pain.
Balance and Perception Problems
Weak muscles and a limited range of motion make it harder
for older people to move with confidence. Age-related declines in sensory
nerves lead to impaired hearing and vision, and slower reaction times
contribute to the fact many older people are unstable on their feet and prone
Aging is inevitable, but physical decline is not
Doctors of Chiropractic medicine are well versed in
techniques to help older people overcome age-related changes in physical function,
reduce the discomfort and stiffness that can accompany aging, and assist with
development of a healthy lifestyle by training people how to perform
therapeutic and preventative exercise techniques, practice healthy eating
habits, and obtain good medical care, including routine vision and hearing
