El Paso, TX. Back Clinic and Spine Specialist: Alzheimer’s disease has exploded into a global health crisis. According to the National Institute on Aging, Alzheimer’s disease “is by far the most threatening epidemic that we have in our nation.”The National Institute on Aging estimates that as many as 5 million Americans over the age of 65 have some form of the disease.

The Alzheimer’s Association states that as many as one in three older people will die from Alzheimer’s disease or dementia in the United States. Chiropractic adjustments are designed to release pressure on the spine in order for proper signaling to the brain. In older people, what happens is glucose does not properly make its way to the brain and sets off a chain of events that can lead to changes to the brain structure that are indicative of this disease.

Chiropractic adjusting in older patients specifically around the cervical area would allow for glucose energy to easily reach the brain, which would prevent the formation of Amyloid-beta proteins and the development of this disease.
