Wellness Care Provided to Debary by Health In Motion
As a chiropractor with a focus on wellness care, its important to look at the larger picture. When we look at the statistics, the average lifespan in 1900 was 49 years of age, today we are living to nearly 79 years of age. The average lifespan is continuing to grow. A report done by the University of Texas estimated that by the year 2050, 800,000 Americans will be over the age of 100.
As we age most of us neglect our structural system, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones and our spinal column because we are unable to see it until we receive imaging. Facts show that the most common cause of functional disability in people over 50 is a spinal disorder. Estimates show that nearly 85% of people will experience significant low back pain during their life and 33% will have to deal with neck pain at some point.
Why You Shouldn't Wait
Most people wait until they are in pain or their “back goes out” before they do anything about it. Imagine if this approach was how we dealt with our dental health. We would wait to brush our teeth until we already had a toothache or cavity. This sounds crazy but that is the same concept.
Our spine is a very important, delicate structure and unlike teeth, it isn’t replaceable. Statistics have shown that only about 1/3 of all spinal surgeries can be deemed successful upon completion.
A little preventative chiropractic care early in life can go a long way in maintaining your musculoskeletal system for years to come. Its important to find a highly trained chiropractor who can focus on the root causes of your issues.
How Wellness Care Works
By correcting and treating biomechanical dysfunctions of the spine and extremities we are able to decrease excess wear and tear on joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles. Looking at the thoracic spine as an example. If your joints do not move or you do not extend through your thoracic spine (midback) then you will over use your shoulder joint, putting extra wear and tear on the rotator cuff muscles and labrum within the shoulder.
When this is not addressed and extra strain and stress is placed on the shoulder over time it starts to develop tears, fibrotic tissue, and joint irritation which then can lead to bigger problems. If the issue is addressed early on, we can prevent this from happening.
When we are treating joint hypomobility, restrictions or muscle tissue imbalances we are working with your body to correct the root cause that could potentially lead to an injury. Unfortunately, one treatment does not fix the condition which took months or years to create. Just like trying to lose weight, consistency is the key.
It takes time and dedication to improve your health and although we cannot see exactly what is happening within the joints or spine, because it’s not as simple as looking in the mirror, we are able to feel the difference once we regain proper joint and muscle motion.
