Can Chiropractic Help Adult Incontinence?

Berkhamsted Chiropractic Clinic Live Better We've got your back

Incontinence, or the difficulty in controlling one’s bladder, affects 4 in 10 women and 1 in 10 men during their lifetime.  About 17% of children younger than 15 years are also affected. In a survey of 2,500 women aged 55–95, 64% reported that urinary incontinence was of great concern to them, but only 25% perceived that it was being adequately addressed by their healthcare provider.  Urinary incontinence is associated with poor quality of life, poor self-rated health, social isolation, depressive symptoms, decline in the instrumental activities of daily living, and an increase in out-of-pocket expenses.

An Older Person's Nervous System

Berkhamsted Chiropractic Clinic Live Better We've got your back

A person’s gradual loss of balance and co-ordination, and decrease in mobility and muscle strength, all contribute to one’s fall risk, regardless of age.

One of the most important reasons for a loss of co-ordination in the elderly is a decline in the nervous system function that occurs when people age.  As the body begins to degenerate, the pressure generated by structural misalignments of the spine system commonly alter the efficiency and accuracy of the nerve signals sent to and from the brain.  Over time, if left unchecked, this situation can cause significant loss of balance, poor control of the limbs, and decrease in mobility.

Physical, Chemical and Emotional Stress

Physical, Chemical and Emotional Stress

You know you’re stressed, but did you know that there are 3 kinds of stress that could be weighing you down? Physical, Chemical and Emotional. Or as DD Palmer the founder of Chiropractic identified "The 3 T's - Trauma, Toxins & Thoughts"

Physical Stress (Trauma)

Physical stress comes from the postures and positions you maintain throughout the day; it results from your actions and activity, or lack thereof. We all understand the importance of a proper work environment and ergonomic habits for manual workers. Too much heavy lifting and twisting or repetition can cause injury. But we don’t pay as much attention to how sedentary many other jobs are. Add that the fact that we sit when we eat, we sit when we drive, we sit when we relax. That lack of motion is another physical stress that your body has to deal with.

Smart Goal Setting

SMART Goal Setting

Many of us set New Year Health resolutions but struggle to keep them -  Why is that you ask? The resolutions you set are often unrealistic or you are not truly committed to change. If you were why wouldn’t you make these changes today?

Forget the New Year’s Resolutions you have made and broken and set a goal today to make a lifestyle change for a more healthier you.

It is important that any goal you set is SMART for it to be successful. To start with stick to one goal at a time, master it, continue with it and move onto the next.
