Montreal Chiropractic as Part of The Plan To Enjoy A Healthier Old Age

A Japanese community’s motto is "Extend healthy life expectancy by having fun." How does that play out? Are our older community members ready to have fun? What would enable an older person to have fun? Independence. Mobility. Painfree movement. Sense of purpose. Community involvement. All of these come into play. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic offers Montreal chiropractic care to keep our community’s older members healthy and equipped to have fun!

JAPAN’s AGING

The Japanese society is noteworthy as it takes a long look at the trend toward an older society and what that means for how the society will work, how medical care will have to evolve, how services will evolve to meet people where they are. Community efforts go far to enrich and improve the quality of life for people. One Japanese city – Anamizu “a town know for the good health and long life” of its 8600 residents because 45.4% of them are over 65 years old – held popular health classes via pharmacies. (1) Kobe City’s pharmacists united to conduct health workshops and establish pharmacies as community health centers. They discussed exercise to improve activities of daily living, disease definition, nutrition, health counseling, and bone density measurement. Such efforts were designed to foster awareness of how to live a better, healthier life and in return a longer life expectancy. (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows well that change can be good.

JAPAN’S CHANGING

Influential changes are the birth and death rates of a country as they affect its structure. In Japan, such trends are followed closely. Its aging population is growing quickly. The 65-year-old and over group in 2013 was 25%; in 2025 it’s expected to be 30%, and in 2060 to be 39.9%. The over 75 years group in 2013 was 12.3% and expected to be 26.9% in 2060. This aging group forms what researchers term a “super-aged” society. With aging, there are different healthcare challenges for the people and their healthcare providers and healthcare system. Researchers write that a change in medical thought from “cure-seeking” to “cure and support seeking” is necessary to maximize the patient’s quality of life. A shift from hospital centered care to community centered care is also called for. Collaboration among healthcare providers especially those who help people stay in their own homes as they age is called for. (3) Collaboration is required.

CHIROPRACTIC’S ROLE IN CARING FOR THE AGING

Chiropractors collaborate for the good of their patients, especially Montreal back pain patients. Chiropractors excel at co-managing conditions with family physicians, physical therapists and massage therapists. They frequently sent older patients to neurologists, family physicians, massage therapists, orthopedists and fellow chiropractors. When it comes to management back pain in older patients, 92% of chiropractors reported that they are confident in their ability to do that. (4) Chiropractic is reportedly protective against 1-year declines in functional and self-rated health issues for Medicare patients who have spine pain issues. Additionally, chiropractic patients have more satisfaction with follow up and information about their condition. (5) Further, a consensus group of researchers concluded that chiropractic for older adult patients is appropriate, particularly that spinal manipulation is safe, exercise recommendations are proper, and manipulation and mobilization extend positive effects beyond just pain relief. (6) Having your Montreal chiropractor at your side is valuable throughout your life and notably in your later years!
