My parents are both in their 70s. This is still young yes, but one of their biggest concerns is remaining independent for as long as possible. One of the best ways to stay healthy (as it's easier to stay healthy, than it is to recover from years of illness/dysfunction), is to be under regular chiropractic care. In addition to pain relief, the benefits are limitless.
One of my patients, her mother in law, now 85, chooses a cortisone shot for sciatica (not a long term solution). Sciatica is an impingement of the sciatic nerve by a bone (or bones) in the low back. After years of this she is now losing muscle control of one of her legs.
A simple and rather quick trip to the chiropractor could quickly alleviate this common ailment and can avoid her dependency on walkers, wheelchairs, and/or pain meds. It could also keep her driving & highly independent.
Subluxations or spinal misalignments can be there long before you have symptoms. However, some symptoms include: headaches, back, neck, shoulder pain, fatigue, sciatica and more. Chiropractic care clears spinal misalignments so your body functions as it is made to, independently, healthy & thriving.
