Parkside Family Chiropractic Health & Wellness Centre in Waterdown provides us with the following information about the musculoskeletal system and how related health conditions can be treated through chiropractic care.
The musculoskeletal (MSK) system is an intricate system of bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons that enable us to perform a multitude of complex tasks. Virtually every function of the body is in some way supported by the MSK system. Naturally, a healthy MSK system is fundamental to overall health and the ability to enjoy many activities throughout a person’s lifetime.
MSK conditions can encompass a wide range of problems, due to the system’s many parts and functions. Anything to do with this complex network can have a disruptive impact on the individual. MSK conditions can impact people of all ages and can be caused by such factors as overexertion or physical trauma. Based on the duration and pattern displayed by any given ailment, that condition is generally said to be acute, subacute, chronic or recurrent. Common areas of the body that are affected by MSK-related conditions include the head and neck, shoulders, back, pelvis, elbows and the hands and wrists. The majority of MSK conditions tend to become increasingly frequent as we age. The aging process, particularly for older adults and seniors, tends to bring about more MSK-related conditions due to such factors as loss of muscle mass, reduced strength, injuries that might occur from such things as slips and falls, and other age-related disorders. MSK conditions need to be addressed quickly; otherwise, the ailments can become chronic and lead to debilitating pain and dysfunction. To ensure healthy aging, it’s important to maintain a healthy MSK system.
Chiropractic care is a vital way to address MSK-related conditions as well as to help enforce the body’s strength, mobility and overall vitality. In addition to treating MSK conditions and other ailments, a chiropractor can advise about health precautions and preventative measures to safeguard an individual’s health and energy. Physical activity, exercise, proper nutrition and taking precautions to prevent injury are all steps in the right direction for good health — all of which can be supplemented by the services provided by a chiropractor.
