You might be thinking, What does “Ageless Wellness” mean?
I’ll start off with a story of a male patient that came in. He was well into his 80’s. He was a sophisticated man and sharp as a tack. He began to explain to me that he still had a very active life and that he enjoyed his social time very much. He went on to tell me that he was tired of going to doctor’s offices that treated him like he was old. He firmly looked at me and said, “Doctor….. AGE IS NOT A DIAGNOSIS.” I smiled from ear to ear and said, “You are absolutely right! And you have no idea how glad I am to hear you say that.” Normally I have to educate individuals about this topic, and he was already right on track.
None of us know how long we are going to live. We don’t have a magic ball that can tell us that. But preventative care and being an active participant in fighting the aging process in your own life by staying healthy can help optimize your quality of life. Quality of life is what we focus on here.
It’s normal at all ages to have some aches and pains periodically, but with the natural aging process for some individuals these aches, and pains can become more frequent and or more intense. Pain and not feeling well physically can sometimes discourage people from participating in physical activity and then the vicious cycle takes over. Their health can decline as well as their happiness and fulfillment.
A lack of physical activity is harmful to your musculoskeletal system in the long run as your muscles can start to stiffen and become weaker. Sitting for prolonged periods of time (like we all do so much with computers these days) can also lead to poor posture and neck and back pain, and it can even worsen ongoing chronic pain symptoms.
Along with other modalities, ongoing chiropractic care or musculoskeletal wellness can keep your nervous system, your muscles, and your spinal health optimized to help you have the freedoms to enjoy life fuller. Being healthy physically can allow for partaking in physical activities such as exercising, dancing, hiking, and vacationing with your significant other.
Our approach is very customized for each patient. We have very specialized equipment that allows for adjusting elderly and individuals that are more fragile in a very safe and comfortable way. I say this because I am very passionate about this topic. Safety and effective treatments for the elderly are very important and deserve very specific care.
When proper care is taken preventively and actively on an ongoing basis it has the potential to help individuals as they go through the aging process. Having aches and pains and feeling old or worn out can affect an individual’s quality of life. Our goal is to help individuals to have a feeling of youthfulness, be active, and to have an amazing zest for life.
Individuals and couples can achieve more happiness and higher quality of life regardless of YOUR AGE!
