Anti-Aging Benefits of Chiropractic Care
A chiropractor isn’t only a back pain solver. Chiropractic care treatment focuses on restoring balance to the central nervous system which is commonly responsible for pain and disorders. This makes it an ideal treatment for the many effects of aging.
Our bodies are constantly going through a process called oxidation, which creates stress that damages cells throughout the body and results in signs of aging. Oxidation is also the same chemical reaction that causes iron to rust.
The spine also degenerates as we age and will degenerate even faster if stress levels are high.
Chiropractic care can play a crucial role in anti-aging treatments, as a chiropractic adjustment is effective in relieving stress.
Research also backs chiropractic care as effective in
reducing stress oxidation in our bodies.
Major hormones are drastically reduced during menopause and stimulated by the anterior pituitary gland. Getting a spine adjustment restores central nervous function to its highest level, which can help relieve the effects of menopause.
Also, women tend to hunch more as they age. Chiropractic adjustments can keep the spine and balance in check to avoid balance issues and injuries that can occur from an unaligned spine.
Aside from chiropractic, other recommended ways to battle the effects of aging are:
- Eat a proper diet
- Exercise regularly
- Have a positive attitude
