Pain After 50 – Is It Inevitable?

It is an accepted concept that once you get past the age of 50, aches and pains become a normal part of your life. But the truth is, even if aging does have an undeniable impact on your body, your age should not be an excuse.

Pain is a tell-tale sign from your body that something is not right and it needs your attention. When you address problems when you are younger, you can continue to live a healthy lifestyle and stay active even when you reach 50 and beyond.

Over time, your body goes through a lot of stress and your posture adapts to this. However, what your muscles and joints do to cope becomes less and less effective as years pass. This can eventually lead to a compromise in balance and even a loss of mobility, forcing you to give up the things you like doing as you grow older.

There is no reason why you should give up what you love! In fact, staying active is important if you want to stay healthier later.

As you age, your muscle fibres can lose their density and become less flexible and sore, especially if you do not get regular chiropractic treatment. You can also be more prone to injury. That’s why when you get older, you feel stiff and sore the day after you do physical activities that you used to enjoy without problems.

Aging affects your spine and back, so it’s as important that you think about back care like you would with more visible parts of your body. Chiropractic care plays a big role in improving musculoskeletal conditions. Chiropractic care helps you enjoy a more active lifestyle even later in life.

You may feel your back aches after long hours of sitting or when you get out of bed, or your legs feel sore after a short walk, or your neck hurts when you turn your head. You might think that all these are normal, but they aren’t. Chiropractic care can help ease the pain you are feeling and keep them from coming back. Yes. Chiropractic care gives you the opportunity to enjoy the activities you used to do.

Chiropractic care is an excellent complementary medicine choice with adults, and it’s not hard to see why. Chiropractic care addresses underlying problems with muscles, joints, spine, and back so you can continue getting involved in all the activities you like.  You also get to reduce your risks of developing high blood pressure, becoming obese, as well as getting high cholesterol, heart disease, and diabetes, among others. Remember that chiropractic is not just cure but also prevention, so it can increase the likelihood that you’ll live independently for years and years to come.

The earlier you become aware of how your body ages, the sooner you can take action and get chiropractic care. Visit Back in Balance so we can assess your spine and thoroughly check for symptoms. We’ll develop a tailored treatment plan to meet your needs. Give us a call today!
