Getting Older – Staying Active

Retirement can bring time for leisure, travel opportunities and interests to the older person. This is the chance to take up those sports and activities that you never had time for whilst working or bringing up your family.

The body, however has changed. It has lost some of its elasticity and ability to adapt. It’s also experienced injuries and postural stress during those years, often resulting in repetitive strain injuries, stiffness and degenerative changes.

The onset of high blood pressure, digestive and circulatory disorders and arthritis have all begun to have a noticeable effect on the body’s energy and ability to perform.

Keeping Healthy

Osteopathy can help greatly during this time.

An osteopath will take a full case history so they can understand how the body has been affected so far. Then, after a full examination and assessment the osteopath will be able to offer treatment and advice to help improve mobility, circulation and immune function, and reduce joint stiffness so that the older person can enjoy a full and active life after retirement.

The treatment is usually gentle and aims to maintain health and prevent further injury. Dietary advice may also be given to help maintain healthy bones and joints.

Remember:

Gentle stretching daily to help maintain tissue elasticity and joint mobility

Walk as much as possible to keep circulation healthy and maintain muscle tone

Have a daily rest to recover energy for the rest of the day’s activities

The use of trainers or similar footwear can help to reduce wear and tear to the knee and hip joints, and can also help reduce back pain when walking on hard surfaces
