06 Nov 7 Fantastic Ways Winter Texans Can Benefit From Chiropractic Care
Are you a Winter Texan coming back home to the Rio Grande Valley? Are you dealing with decreased mobility, excessive back pain, or a lower quality of life because of pain caused by arthritis or joint-related issues?
The McAllen chiropractors at Hendrick Wellness Center are here to let you know that there is hope. Chiropractic care for older Americans is quickly becoming a go-to solution for dealing with a wide range of ailments.
If you have been thinking about seeking out chiropractic care, please consider the following information.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Older Adults
1. Drug-Free Care
One of the most appealing factors for older adults is that chiropractic care is a holistic (natural) and effective system of treatment that does not require medications. It’s also worth mentioning that while chiropractic care can do wonders for back pain and joint relief, it has also been shown to help prevent and heal conditions associated with:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Irregular heartbeats
This non-invasive system of treatment – meaning no surgery required – can do wonders for your health.
2. Supports Your Immune System
Your body’s immune system works in union with your nervous system. When your nervous system cannot effectively communicate with your immune system, illnesses can have a greater negative effect on your health.
Chiropractic care can help to realign your nervous system with your immune system, helping your body to heal and repair itself much more effectively.
3. Improves Blood Pressure
A study conducted at the University of Chicago hypertension center found that a special chiropractic adjustment to realign the Atlas vertebra – the doughnut-like bone at the very top of the spine – could significantly lower high blood pressure.
The placebo-controlled study, while conducted on a small group of 50 patients, showed great promise. The individuals who received the real procedure saw an average 14 mm Hg greater drop in systolic blood pressure and an average 8 mm Hg greater drop in diastolic blood pressure.
4. Improved Range of Motion
As we begin to age, a decreased range of motion can make everyday tasks difficult to perform. From brushing your teeth to performing your daily hygiene routines, arthritis, back pain, and joint pain can severely limit your range of motion.
At Hendrick Wellness Center, our McAllen chiropractors are able to perform a number of chiropractic care techniques to improve your range of motion and enhance your quality of life, including but not limited to:
- Spinal manipulation
- Diversified manipulative technique
- Atlas orthogonal
- Electrical stimulation
- Myofascial massage
5. Reduce Your Pain
Chiropractic care has the ability to limit inflammation and correct the spinal subluxations – small dislocations – that cause pain. Even more amazingly, this can all be done without the use of medications that can cause other serious health conditions.
It’s worth noting that chiropractic care is especially effective against inflammation, which has been associated with heart disease.
6. Arthritis & Joint Pain Relief
Two of the most frequently cited health issues older adults face is arthritis and joint degeneration. These health issues can lead to misalignments in the spine which can, in turn, cause degeneration to occur at a faster pace.
Both arthritis and joint degeneration can greatly reduce your ability to perform everyday actions and affect your quality of life.
However, regular chiropractic care has been shown to slow down these processes and prevent more serious issues from developing.
7. Increased Well-Being and Quality of Life
Chiropractic care can have a profound effect on your general health while also improving your quality of life. Beyond merely treating pain, our McAllen chiropractors at Hendrick Wellness Center are able to perform services that will:
- Help you sleep through the night
- Decrease headaches and migraines
- Improve your energy
- Increase mobility to help you enjoy everyday activities like gardening and taking walks
- Improve balance and coordination that will help to prevent falls
And so much more!
