Did you know that visiting a chiropractor may also promote health and vitality? At Wellness & Chiropractic Care in Brunswick, ME, we can create a plan that can help you remain healthy and active as you age!
What Is Healthy Aging?
Healthy aging includes a holistic approach to living the best life possible even as a person ages. This means adopting healthy behaviors so disease and injury are eliminated or managed no matter how old a person may be. Chiropractic care is one way healthcare providers can help keep an individual healthy and active throughout the person's entire life.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help?
As people age, they become more susceptible to a variety of medical conditions, such as arthritis. Even a minor injury can take more time to recover from. Our chiropractor can not only help a person recover more quickly from injuries or manage medical conditions, but can create a personalized plan to keep a person as fit and healthy as possible. This means injuries are less likely to occur and the person may be less susceptible to medical problems related to aging. There are several specific ways that chiropractic care may help you as you age.
- Provide Pain Relief Without Strong Prescription Drugs
- Improve Coordination and Balance
- Increase Range of Motion in Arms, Legs, and Spine
- May Reduce the Need of a Nursing Facility
What Role Does Nutrition Play?
What you eat and drink plays a crucial role in your overall health and vitality. Metabolism normally declines as you age. This means unless you reduce your caloric intake you may gain weight. Weight gain will make you more susceptible to diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. It's important to follow a nutrition plan that includes a variety of healthy and satisfying foods.
