Improve Age-Related Mobility Issues with Chiropractic Care

Chiropractor for seniors windsor Ontario Scott ColasantiOur goal at Huron Church Chiropractic and Family Wellness Centre is to get and keep people of all ages healthy and active. As we age, many of us experience a decrease in mobility and thereby a reduction in activity. Maintaining a physically active lifestyle is the key to a long and happy life.

A study from the University of Iowa has concluded that regular chiropractic care can help older people stay active.

Along with other factors, the study focused on older patients’ activity levels for those who utilized regular chiropractic care versus those who did not.

Comparing the two groups, the researches concluded the following:

Those who utilized chiropractic care:

  • Had fewer mobility limitations
  • Fewer doctor visits and need for hospitalization
  • Experienced less difficulty with daily activities, such as walking and lifting objects

This study provides evidence of a protective effect of chiropractic care against 1-year declines in functional and self-rated health among Medicare beneficiaries with spine conditions, and indications that chiropractic users have higher satisfaction with follow-up care and information provided about what is wrong with them.
