Many changes occur as we age, but some of the most common are changes in our bones, joints, and muscles. Our bones may become thinner and more brittle, leading to fractures more easily. The cartilage between our joints may wear down, leading to pain and stiffness. And our muscles may lose mass and strength, making it harder to do everyday activities.
Chiropractic care for seniors can address all these changes. Chiropractors can help keep our bones and joints healthy and mobile and can help us keep our muscles strong and flexible. This can help us stay active and independent as we age.
Several factors can contribute to the acceleration of these changes as we age. One crucial factor is that our cells gradually lose their ability to regenerate as we age. This means they cannot heal as quickly or efficiently after being damaged. Additionally, our bones may become weaker and more prone to fracturing as we age. This is due in part to the natural loss of bone density that occurs with age. Finally, our muscles may also start to deteriorate as we get older, leading to a decrease in strength and mobility.
