Musculoskeletal Health- Keep an eye on the body as it ages

Australians on average are living into their eighties these days. Whilst this is amazing it is also very important that we take the time to look after our health and body. Here at Back to Basics Chiropractic we have a range of patients from infants to the elderly. We believe in the importance of musculoskeletal health regardless of age.

musculoskeletal health- healthy aging

When we are it’s highly common to feel pain and aches through your body. However, it is crucial that we monitor these pains as some are common with aging and natural whilst others are preventable.

As we age our bodies lose elasticity. Our bones and muscles because more dense and weaker. Which is why it is highly important that you monitor these changes. Otherwise pains felt from everyday tasks can lead to acute and chronic pain. This is due to the body not being able to regenerate as quickly.

How can being active help musculoskeletal health?

We believe in the importance of maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle to help your body though the ageing process. This will help with mobility and flexibility for the body. We recommend low impact exercise such as swimming and walking.

However, we advise talking to a doctor or one of our Chiropractors to see what is right for you. To do so you can call our friendly reception staff, or simply skip the que by booking online.
