Chiropractic Care at Every Stage of Adulthood


Throughout each decade of your adulthood, chiropractors can offer innovative solutions and expert guidance to mitigate pain, maintain fitness, and proactively prepare for your future.

Adulthood by the Decade

20s

Staying active as a young adult is a great way to establish healthy lifestyle choices. Chiropractors can help you deal with any new aches or pains while also helping to meet your fitness goals and build comprehensive exercise regimen to keep you moving.  

30s

Priorities may begin to shift in your 30s (i.e. children, increase work responsibilities, or parental caregiving), and it can be difficult to maintain healthy habits while trying to navigate this new time in your life. Chiropractors can help determine your origins of pain or discomfort your sleep, nutritional, and exercise needs, and then create a comprehensive plan constructed around your busy schedule to meet those goals. If work related injuries occur, our chiropractors can help you recover so you can return back to work with less likelihood of recurrence in the future.

40s

As we age, aches and pains may begin to creep up. While remaining active in our 40s can lead to longer life expectancy and inhibit the development of chronic diseases, it can be difficult to stay active when neck, back, and joint pain arise. Chiropractors will prescribe stretches and exercises that will mitigate this pain and get you back to doing what you love.

50s

Chronic pain (such as arthritis) affects millions of Americans each year. Through a customized program focused on improving strength, stamina, and flexibility, a chiropractor will be able to help you manage or diminish pain without the use of medication. These tools can also decrease the need for surgical intervention. One study has even showed that seeing a chiropractor before seeking surgical procedures reduced the odds of having spinal surgery from 42.7% to 1.5%.

60s & Beyond

If surgical intervention is necessary (such as knee or hip replacements), chiropractic is a fantastic resource for pre-habilitation. Studies have shown that performing range of motion, strength, aerobic, balance, and flexibility training prior to undergoing surgery are less likely to require inpatient rehabilitation and often have faster recovery times.

During this phase of aging, balance and stability are key to staying active, preventing falls and injuries, and remaining independent. Chiropractors can benchmark the needs of this generation of adults to determine specific risks related to falls, injuries, or other life-altering risks. Once the areas of risk are identified with an individual patient, they’re able to preemptively adjust the spine to improve flexibility and mobility to increase balance and provide exercises and activities that strengthen muscles in order to reduce the risk of fall.
