You Can Help Stave Off the Effects of Aging with Chiropractic Care

relaxed matured coupleArthritis is the slow, progressive damage to the joints of the body caused by abnormal motion over time. Everyone will develop arthritis if they live long enough, but there are things you can do to help ensure you don’t develop early-onset arthritis and maintain or even improve your mobility.

Good Spinal Hygiene

Until the age of about 25, your spine is still growing. But from that age on, your spine grows and becomes more fixed. The period of time from your mid-twenties to your mid-forties is critical in taking good care of your spine, so it can take good care of you later in life.

Since arthritis is caused by abnormal motion, which causes wear and tear in the joints, we want to ensure optimal motion. Stress and imbalances in the structure of the spine lead to abnormal motion, and chiropractic care locates and corrects these areas of stress and imbalance.

When we restore proper alignment and balance to the spine, your body can move properly—and when your body moves as it should, wear and tear on the joints are minimized. Good spinal hygiene can also help prevent that stiffness and soreness that many people start experiencing in their forties.

Dr. Agan‘s background is in exercise, and he supplements chiropractic adjustments with exercises and stretches that help retrain the muscles to hold better alignment and move with greater ease.

Natural Pain Relief

Many people automatically reach for the ibuprofen or acetaminophen when they feel stiff or sore. While they offer temporary relief, relying on them is not ideal for your long-term health. Dr. Agan specializes in precise, gentle manual chiropractic adjustments that often provide more lasting relief, since they address the underlying cause of the problem. If additional pain relief is needed, Agan Chiropractic offers natural pain relievers.
