The Tampa Bay area is one of the best places in the world to live. The warm sunshine combined with ample social activities encourages many to get outside and stay active. For seniors with back pain, arthritis, or decreased mobility enjoying this splendid climate and an active lifestyle can be very difficult. While some decline in mobility is normal as our birthday's add up, significant loss in the ability to get around and be active is not a normal process and can be hugely detrimental to a person's quality of life. According to the Center for Disease Control, the top two reasons people are disabled over 50 is arthritis and back pain. For decades Chiropractors have told their patients that getting adjusted regularly can slow the progressions of spinal arthritis, improve mobility, and reduce pain. A recent report out of the University of Iowa has come to the same conclusion.
