People are living longer than ever before. The fastest growing population in the US is centenarians (100 years old) and that means a lot of 70, 80 and 90 year old people are also alive.

Many times your quality of health is consistent with quantity of health but not always. The generation now in its 80’s , 90’s and 100’s was known as the “great generation” but now they are known as the “nursing care” generation as many have outlived their life expectancy when they were born by 2 to 4 decades. They were not prepared physically, mentally, emotionally or financially to live this long so now they are in nursing homes, living with children, suffering from senile dementia, Alzheimer’s, severe arthritis or other autoimmune conditions rendering them with a loss of independence.

As following generations, we are being forewarned that we will most likely be living longer and we have an opportunity to make changes in how we live now so as to enjoy these years with quantity and quality.

Many problems that are prevalent now in the population are related to lifestyle (70% to 90%) therefore preventable. Diabetes, heart disease, many cancers and arthritis are by-products of poor lifestyle choices. These lifestyle choices can lead to obesity and de-conditioning of our spine and muscles leading to many physical problems that limit our activities of daily living.

Luckily by making changes and receiving safe, effective and affordable care such as chiropractic, physical therapy, acupuncture, massage and decompression many limiting activities can be regained. Non-surgical procedures such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), stem cell therapy, Suppartz and trigger point therapy along with physical therapy and chiropractic can be utilized to restore function to joints and improve overall health and mobility. Natural supplements and herbs can replace the over-the-counter medications in your medicine cabinet to help alleviate symptoms and prevent problems with minimum side effects.

These treatments are helping to keep the new 60, 70, 80, 90 and even 100 year old populations fit and functional. We see it every day in our office and we love to see people regain, retain and optimize their health. So those seniors who are not functioning as well as before, you have a resource to get you back in the game and help you protect your health and function as long as you live.

If you are on Medicare, we have many services available to help you restore your health that are covered by Medicare and the services that are not covered are very affordable.

If you are reading this and you are in your 30’s, 40’s or 50’s, this message is even more important for you. By making the changes in your lifestyle now and taking better care of yourself, by the time you get into your 60’s and beyond you will have a head start on these decades and have a better chance to add years to your life and life to your years.
