Advanced Chiropractic Group Proudly Offers Senior Chiropractic Care
The senior years can bring a few more aches and pains than our younger years. As we get older, we are prone to developing arthritis, experience slip and fall injuries, and have reduce mobility. At Advanced Chiropractic Group in Santa Barbara, CA, we help seniors maximize their physical function with safe and effective chiropractic care.
Arthritis and Aging
Arthritis is a degenerative joint disorder that affects the musculoskeletal function. The most common type, osteoarthritis, is responsible for the aching joints, nagging stiffness, and problems with mobility in older people. The normal wear and tear on the joints that occurs with everyday movement can lead to arthritis in your senior years. Trauma to the joints can also result in a breakdown of the cartilage and arthritis symptoms. If you are significantly overweight, the additional pressure on joints can lead to arthritis.
Muscle Strains and Sprains
Aging can lead to a reduction in muscle strength. You may find it more difficult to bend over, reach upward, or engage in recreational activities that require easy movement. A simple strain can lead to chronic discomfort and loss of normal flexibility. Your chiropractor in Santa Barbara can help with a number of techniques to improve your mobility and function.
Chiropractic Care Can Provide Pain Relief
Seniors may notice a loss of flexibility and range of motion when arthritis and muscle weakness occurs. Your chiropractor in Santa Barbara can help improve your muscle strength and flexibility, and reduce inflammation and pain with corrective exercises and physiotherapy. Manual adjustments can also help to restore normal alignment in the spine and range of motion. In addition to these benefits, chiropractic care improves the quality of life in seniors. Our techniques are safe and effective, and can prevent future injuries.
