Feeling Like a Million Bucks: Old Age Edition
Spinal longevity means a better old age
Our spine is the foundation of our well-being. When we are young, the majority of us are blessed to take it for granted, moving at will and maintaining a natural resilience to injury. But age is the natural enemy of our spine- the truth is, human lifespans are now longer than the sell-by dates of our spines. Here is why spines matter for old age:
- They keep us mobile: initiating and sustaining the forces incurred during movement begins with the spine.
- They support us: staying upright means staying healthy. A properly supported spine keeps us feeling our best.
- A healthy spine can prevent injury
- Provides a conduit for the nervous system
Protecting spinal longevity at Family Chiropractic & Natural Healing Center
We are treating more and more spines that are prematurely degraded by sedentary lifestyles, poor diet and overuse of electronics. What does this tell us as an office of chiropractic? That there is a general lack of awareness when it comes to spinal longevity and the factors that matter for keeping yourself upright and independent into old age. The solution? The time is now to start paying attention to, and caring for, our spines in a proactive manner. At our office in Milpitas, we are well-equipped to help you do just that.
Keeping your spine healthy as you age
We are dedicated to keeping your spine as mobile and healthy as possible despite the incursions of age. While some conditions are hereditary, and some injuries are unavoidable, there are still steps we can take everyday toward prevention. Using chiropractic adjustment and decompression modalities, we realign the spine and alleviate nerve pressure, allowing you to feel less pain and move more freely. From here, we set a plan to strengthen the core-stabilizing muscles which support the lumbar vertebrae and prevent injury. If you are interested in your spinal longevity, give our office in Milpitas a call to schedule an appointment today.
