Chiropractic care has long enjoyed a reputation as a safe, natural type of therapy that can achieve dramatic results. Experts predict that by 2030, approximately 72 million Americans will be seniors. An increasing number of individuals in this age group are visiting our chiropractor in Encinitas to improve or help maintain their overall health and quality of life. Here’s why.
Getting treatment from chiropractors on a regular basis can accomplish two things. These services often include gentle adjustments to the spine that move its components into the proper alignment and relieve pain in your back and your neck. However, they can also improve a patient’s general health and create an overall feeling of well-being.
Chiropractors are professionals with specialized training in identifying spinal problems and how they affect a patient’s central nervous system. Their training includes effectively treating these problems in a safe yet gentle and natural way without using pain relievers or anti-inflammatory drugs.
As people age, new problems such as mobility limitations and the possibility of injuries arise. Fortunately, chiropractors are able to lessen many symptoms linked to senior patients.
Treatment from Lund Chiropractic in Encinitas can help senior citizens with these seven important problems:
Pain is among the top reasons why older patients visit our practice. Gentle adjustments relieve neck and back discomfort caused by arthritis. They are a safe way to relieve pressure on tendons, muscles, and discs and help many individuals avoid medication.
Lowered immunity occurs when your nervous system is not functioning properly. When it is operating as it should, your entire body functions as it was designed to work. Your immune system wards off influenza, infections, colds, and other ailments.
Joint deterioration is the result of degenerative wear associated with aging. When spinal vertebrae and bones are misaligned, the pressure they exert on joints can speed degeneration. Joint deterioration is a leading cause of mobility issues and surgery for senior patients.
Poor posture interrupts both comfort and self-confidence. Without a straight spine, many people pass their lives in a bent position. This exerts even more pressure on the spine, resulting in discomfort. Regular appointments can alleviate this problem.
Decreased range of motion is a familiar sign of advancing age. Regular appointments can help a senior expand range of motion for added flexibility and ease of movement. Both of these are important capabilities for avoiding falls and being able to continue to live in your own home.
Stress and tension sometimes interrupt a senior’s sense of well-being. Eliminating tension that affects your nervous system can restore a pleasant sense of well-being, increase your energy level, and decrease symptoms of depression.
Poor nutrition can rob your body’s ability to heal itself and return to a state of well-being. Chiropractors receive considerable training in counseling patients about nutrition. Our practice evaluates your particular requirements and objectives before recommending the appropriate foods and supplements to meet them.

I started coming to Dr. Lund a few months ago. I have improved so much. I have never let better! I have no more PMS!! I am a lot calmer and I look and feel more relaxed. If you don't believe me, ask my husband.
Dr Lund is a great chiropractor. Besides the ease of scheduling and a clean office, his skills are unmatched. I have been to 7 chiropractors in different parts of the country, and none have been as effective as Dr Lund. He doesn't have you come in and do some elaborate first time visit full of X-rays or tests, but listens well to your concerns, feels your problem areas and adjusts you quickly. In minutes you are in and out with no stress and feeling 100% better. Don't waste your time looking for another chiropractor, just call him..
Professional, polite, proactive, delightful. Having back pain since a child I sceptically decided to go to a chiropractor at age 40 (my back pain was not acceptable anymore). Dr Lund explained the cause & affect of my back pain & surprisingly why I may I also be having intestinal issues that my body/back is trying to accommodate for. He has a good bed side manner yet is firm with his advise (ie: try harder & do daily back exercises). I needed that.
