We’ve all heard the jokes: you know you’re getting older when your back aches. Many people assume that stiffness, sore joints, back pain, and general discomfort are inevitable as we get older.
But is pain really “normal?”
It’s harder to notice a gradual onset of pain
One of the insidious things about pain, stiffness, and loss of range of movement is that they often come on gradually. Over time, it’s easy to forget that your shoulder doesn’t move the way it used to, or that you used to wake up without a back ache, or that you didn’t always rely on over-the-counter painkillers to feel comfortable. Coping with the pain and its restrictions on your life becomes “normal” to you.
When hurting is “normal,” people are more likely to delay treatment until the pain becomes severe.
“Common” and “normal” are two different things
It’s true that back pain is common. The majority of people will experience it in their lifetimes.
However, just because it is common doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t be treated.
Chiropractic care supports your body as you live an active lifestyle.
Chiropractors are musculo-skeletal experts. Your chiropractor can help you to maintain your spinal health. Chiropractic care is effective for many kinds of back pain.
Chiropractic care can also help to treat limited range of motion, stiffness, and balance issues.
If you have an ache, a strain, regular discomfort, or a limited range of motion, it doesn’t have to be with you for life.
You deserve wellness
Would you rather seek treatment for your pain, or simply accept that discomfort is normal?
