During the later stages of life substantial changes occur in the spine. As we get older spinal discs, ligaments, muscles and other tissues become tired, dehydrated and less able to withstand the natural pressures of day-to-day living. As a result, pain or discomfort from spinal degeneration such as arthritis becomes more noticeable and the time taken to heal from injuries increases.
By focusing on how well the nervous system is functioning chiropractic care addresses the cause of these symptoms and can help with decreasing spinal pain, minimise degeneration and improve flexibility and mobility.
Chiropractic care can also help slow any further degeneration in a safe and effective manner by using gentle adjustments. This focuses on improving the function of the nervous system, ensuring that correct messages are sent from the brain through the body and aiding in helping the body to function correctly.
It is certainly never too late, no matter how far gone you think you are, to get your nervous system functioning more efficiently for a better healthier tomorrow.
