Aging is a real pain in the neck...literally! Growing older can do quite a number on the mobility of your joints, but there are many effective treatments for age-related aches and pains, chiropractic care chief among them.
Aging causes general degeneration of joints in the spine, which triggers back pain. There is also a link between aging and problems with coordination and balance. This is largely due to the degeneration of structures known as mechanoreceptors. Located in the spine, mechanoreceptors play an important role in balance and coordination. Mechanoreceptors become impaired with time, and as they degrade, coordination and balance problems can arise. These common issues are experienced by more and more of the elderly population in the Portland and Gresham area every year.
Chiropractic care can aid seniors by increasing mobility in the spine and limbs. Proper chiropractic adjustment means the enjoyment of activities without the pain and discomfort associated with spinal misalignment. Additionally, through regular chiropractic care, problems associated with mechanoreceptor degradation can be repaired.
