What Causes Aches and Pains in Old Age?

Aches and Pains in Old Age When it comes to ageing, most of us just seem to assume that aches and pains are part of the package. However, this is only true to a certain extent. While there are some normal aches and pains to ageing, these can be mitigated to a certain extent by taking the right precautions. Pain is usually your body’s way of signalling that something’s wrong and so if you’re experiencing notable amounts of pain as you grow older, it isn’t something you should ignore or simply put up with. It’s important to take the right steps to address aches and pains, no matter how old you are. And the sooner you address them, the better. The Normal Aches and Pains of Ageing Our bodies undergo a significant amount of stress over the course of our lives, and so it makes sense that we experience things differently as we grow older. There may be certain activities that you could with ease when you were younger, whether it’s something as simple as kicking a football around a park with some friends. But whereas simple activities or sports had no effect on you in the past, now they may leave your joints feeling stiffer than usual the next day. This can cause you to feel less mobile and free than before. As we age, our bodies become more prone to damage, which means we need to take additional steps to take care of them. It’s important to remember that your body is carrying all those years of sports and physical activities that you have behind you. But...

What is Recommended for Relief of Lower Back Pain

What is Recommended for Relief of Lower Back Pain Lower back pain is something everyone gets at some point to varying degrees. Some people will have a fall or some sort of trauma however lots, if not most people, will just slowly start to get a nagging ache in their lower back that grows over time with no obvious cause for it. If you are any of these then this is a guide on how Chiropractic care can help you. I will try to keep this short and sweet but as you probably can imagine there are lots of elements to lower back pain, especially the not so obvious type. So to start off we should discuss the guidelines set out by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, or known as the NICE Guidelines, as this is what all medical and therapeutic services in the UK should abide to that includes the NHS and private services (NICE Guidelines Pathway Updated March 2021). What the NICE Guidelines recommend for Lower Back Pain The first step is to get the correct information on your lower back pain as well as information on how to manage it yourself. Chiropractic is in a very strong position to help you with this as we specialise in back and spine problems, yes we can help with other body parts and problems however back pain is our bread and butter. The second step has many options and which one you take depends on how you would like to manage your problem. The different options are Exercise, Manual Therapy, Psychological Therapy, Pharmacological treatments or Specific...
The Ozone & Chiropractic

The Ozone & Chiropractic

I was on my lunch break and I’ve just seen a really interesting news article that came out. It was saying that the ozone hole over Antarctica has healed over for the first time. Rather naively, my initial thought was this is down to the world being in lockdown due to coronavirus, all the efforts, the things that we’ve done, it had a real positive impact. Obviously, the reality is it takes a lot longer for things like the ozone layer to heal. A hole over the ozone doesn’t heal over a couple of weeks or months. The reality is, it was down to banning of CFCs and aerosol sprays back in the ’80s. Also, weather patterns had played a large role in it healing over as well. It got me thinking, we’ve seen lots of reports coming out about amazing things happening, the canals of Venice clearing up and dolphins swimming in them. I know there’s lots of other reasons not just a reduction in pollution, but we’re starting to see nature breathe again. For example, the other day, I’ve started to see honeybees in my garden. I’ve never seen a honeybee in my garden before. It could just be a coincidence, but it feels like nature’s coming alive again. There’s a saying within Chiropractic, that ‘nature needs no help, it just needs no interference’. We don’t do things as humans to nature to heal it. What we do is we stop doing the things that are interfering with it. That’s how nature is going to heal. Nature can look after itself. It will restore the balance. It...
