Aging and Chiropractic
Aging is a natural process that occurs as an individual goes through life. Over time, the body goes through natural changes such as thinning or graying hair, declining senses or decreased function in bodily organs and normal wear and tear on joints and muscles.
Around the world, people are living longer, making proactive and preventative healthcare, such as chiropractic, critical to not only living longer, but enjoying the later years in good health.
Longer Lifespans and the Baby Boomers
According to the 2012 Center for Disease Control and Prevention report, life expectancy in the U.S. is 78.7 years. Incredibly, that’s nearly double what it was in 1880, when Americans were living between 38.3 and 44 years.
Currently, baby boomers are turning 65 years old at a rate of 10,000 per day! As this generation likely extends the average lifespan, drug-free and conservative forms of healthcare, like chiropractic, can play an important role in preserving good health.
