It’s pretty safe to say that almost everyone wants to preserve their youthfulness as long as possible, and not just in the way we feel but also in the way we look. There are many factors that contribute to premature aging but most of them are preventable. However, for any of the millions of Americans who suffer from chronic pain, simply limiting sun exposure or drinking more water may not be enough to ward off premature aging. There is good news though, as more and more patients are discovering the benefits of chiropractic neurology as a highly desired treatment for a wide variety of conditions.
In order to develop an effective anti-aging skin care regimen, it is important to know what contributes to premature aging. While there are many reasons that a person may develop signs of aging, some of the most common habits that contribute to this phenomenon are:
- Sun Exposure
- Lack of Exercise
- Exposure to Cold Weather
- Lack of Sleep
- Poor Diet and Alcohol Use
While some signs of aging are inevitable, all the factors on that list are manageable and aid in not only staving off the signs of aging, but also in contributing to your overall health.
A more serious condition that contributes to premature aging is pain, the most common reason that Americans today seek out medical help. In fact, in 2004 researchers at Northwestern University in Chicago found that patients who suffer from chronic pain may actually lose grey matter in their brains. The study, which evaluated 26 long-suffering patients, showed a loss of approximately 1.3 cubic centimeters of brain matter for each year of pain, equivalent to 10-20 years of aging. Ten to 20 years!
But there are more resources available now than ever before in the advancement of pain management, WITHOUT drugs, surgeries or ongoing, invasive and many times ineffective results. Chiropractic neurology is a perfect option for patients looking for treatment for pain, and many other conditions. Highly trained in the inter-workings of the brain, spine and nervous system, Chiropractic Neurologists play a unique and significant role in treating brain and nervous system disorders, and all those conditions that ultimately stem from them. Chiropractic neurology provides a safe, fast-acting and non-invasive, effective treatment option that provides long lasting health benefits. More and more patients who have tried more traditional medical treatments without success are finding relief through Chiropractic Neurology.
