Dr. Philip Day has been receiving amazing positive feedback from seniors who take advantage of his chiropractic adjustments on a regular basis.
Now Dr. Day aims to help seniors stay active through not only ongoing chiropractic care, but also the new balance therapy he established. Added to his rehab-equipment is a new star-machine, on which one can learn how to keep balance. Why is balance important? – you may wonder. As many as 28% to 45% of elders fall each year……
Even though one’s balance will, most likely, decrease with age, balance training can limit the loss or even improve performance. Maintaining balance means having the centre of mass within your base of support with your trunk aligned over your feet. In the past, people have tended to believe that perfect balance was best illustrated by standing on one leg and staying as still as possible for as long as possible. However, if we were to take a time-lapsed photograph of someone performing that activity over several minutes, even the most skillful mime-artist would fail to reproduce it. Thus, even when we are trying to remain completely still, our body is constantly oscillating, transferring energy, loading and unloading in a type of perfect chaos. Consequently, a human body’s systems are set up to respond to feedback, and, if we were to remain completely still, no feedback could be offered. Balance is a dynamic process, which applies to everything we do. Ordinarily, we take our balance for granted, but it is an important and vital part of our daily life.
Imbalance can be caused by age, misalignment in one’s body and many other reasons. Imbalance itself can cause vision problems, pain or weakness in hips, knees and feet, it can reduce one’s ability to lift feet and arms, and many other undesired consequences. Adjustments by Dr. Philip Day help restore proper alignment of a spine, increase wellbeing and return functionality to one’s body as well as improve the quality of life.
