Aging from Chiroone
Old age doesn’t have to mean sick age or weak age. It is possible to live a long, full life without being physically or mentally incapacitated. It is possible and ideal to stay physically and mentally healthy your entire lifetime, reverse or slow aging and recover physical and mental strength.
For example, in one study nine 86-96 year olds worked out with a weight machine three times a week and increased the strength of their quadriceps by an average of 174%.
Severe mental decline or senility is also not a part of normal aging – 80% of healthy Americans (barring psychological distress) suffer no significant memory loss as they age. As Cicero said, “I’ve never heard of an old man who forgot where his money was hidden.”
Chiropractic for the Elderly
Chiropractic care offers a non-medical, health centered option to the over-drugged older population who often suffer illness and death from medications. Chiropractic care frees the body from a serious form of health-damaging stress called subluxation that causes premature aging by destroying vitality and weakening our nerve system and decreasing our natural healing ability. Accepting that certain medical procedures have a place in our lives, chiropractors emphasize minimizing medical care as much as possible and saving you stress, time and money.
No one, of course, knows all the secrets of a long and healthy life, but clearly one of them is that a body free of subluxation is more flexible, balanced, stronger and healthier than a body with subluxation. Regular chiropractic spinal adjustments should be a part of every older person’s healthcare regime to help keep them younger and healthier at any age.
