As we age, a lifetime of stress has affected our spinal discs, joints and muscles – they have become weaker and more vulnerable to injury. Regular chiropractic visits combined with nutritional, stretching and exercise recommendations can help minimize many common senior ailments.
Although chiropractic is a common alternative therapy, among seniors it’s not as utilized. Older patients might be unfamiliar with or unaware of the benefits of chiropractic care. Some senior patients may fear spinal manipulation, but chiropractic adjustments are gentle and specific to the patients’ needs and physical state. Any relevant health history and concerns are addressed upfront.
A goal of chiropractic care is to improve general wellbeing and this is particularly important to help seniors remain or become active and healthy again. The fact is that everyone benefits from regular chiropractic care, regardless of age.
