Senior Care at Arbor Crossing Chiropractic Life Center, PLC
The senior years can be tremendously rewarding ones, but they also present certain challenges that can limit your ability to enjoy them. Decades of stress on the musculoskeletal system, coupled with natural age-related ailments, can leave you suffering from chronic pain, stiffness, and other problems. But if you're worried about adding another heavy medication to your list of prescriptions, rest assured that you can receive drug-free pain management and wellness support at Arbor Crossing Chiropractic Life Center, PLC in Livonia MI.
Why Chiropractic Care Makes Sense for Seniors
Even you're still feeling good, a quick glance at the people in your neighborhood will remind you of the many ways that age can alter physical function and structure. You, too, may find yourself moving more slowly or adopting a stooped posture due to musculoskeletal pain and stiffness. Some of these problems that lead to this discomfort are simply the result of gradual wear, such as the breakdown of joint cartilage that occurs in osteoarthritis. The facet joints that join and mobilize your vertebrae may also develop osteoarthritis, especially if they've suffered chronic strain and inflammation due to bulging, flattened-out discs. Aging, bulging discs are also prone to painful injury called herniation-- with the herniated disc putting pressure on nerve roots, aggravating pain while creating neurological symptoms such as numbness and weakness. Other conditions such as spinal stenosis can also worsen with age, causing nerve dysfunction and discomfort.
Many geriatric pain sufferers assume that must adopt a diet of heavy, risky painkillers to enjoy a normal, active lifestyle. But these drugs don't actually treat the reasons for your pain; they only numb the pain temporarily, and they may also interact dangerously with your other medications. By contrast, chiropractic senior care offers a safe, effective means of correcting musculoskeletal imbalances and normalizing joint position for natural, non-pharmaceutical joint pain relief.
A Variety of Conservative Treatment Methods
Our Livonia chiropractor, Dr. Schneier, can administer targeted adjustments to correct alignment issues in the joints, treating your symptoms at their source. These corrections can also remove pressure from major nerves and nerve roots, relieving the tingling, numbness, and weakness that can affect your balance and comfort. Normalizing your nerve function can even improve your immune response and systemic health, providing you with a powerful preventative wellness tool in your senior years. We can enhance your chiropractic care with other conservative techniques to create an individualized senior care plan. For instance, you may benefit from a holistic program featuring chiropractic treatment, physiotherapy and corrective exercises that control your pain, improve your musculoskeletal stability and increase your range of motion.
