Greetings friends of Austin’s TexStar Chiropractic, and today, particularly warm greetings to our senior friends and neighbors. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), falls are one of the 10 leading causes of nonfatal emergency department visits in the United States. Adults aged 65 and older have the highest incidence of unintentional falls. These statistics can make a compelling case for seniors to strongly consider chiropractic treatment as a non-surgical and drug-free way to decrease the threat of fall-related injury.
But for seniors, chiropractic is not simply about fall prevention. Chiropractic has demonstrated an ability to reduce the risk of arthritis, improve balance and mobility, reduce the likelihood of requiring the care of a nursing home, and even decrease the incidences of hospital stays. Here is a list of the potential health benefits you can enjoy with a strategic chiropractic care plan:
- Prevent Falls
- Manage pain without surgery or narcotic medication
- Improve Balance
- Increase Range of Motion
- Boost Immunity
We’ve covered these five subjects in past TexStar Chiropractic blog posts and will continue to do so in the future. We feel it is important for you to know TexStar Chiropractic is improving the lives of Austin residents just like you. In fact, seniors, take a moment to hear Sharon’s story about how her medical doctor referred her to TexStar for severe lower back pain. You don’t have to give in to age-related conditions!
