Chiropractic care for the elderly

Seniors struggle with many issues such as joint ache, chronic pain, discomfort and immobility due to aging. These problems can disrupt daily activities and reduce their quality of life. Fortunately, the elderly don’t have to continue living with these problems. Chiropractic care is an effective and safe form of treatment for the elderly. It provides many health benefits including the following:

  1. Relief of Pain
  2. Chiropractors can identify and treat subluxations (misalignments of the vertebrae), which affects the central nervous system. They readjust misalignments in the spine to treat spinal related pain, such as neck pain, back pain, and joint pain.

  3. Improved Range of Motion
  4. Aging and degenerative conditions can cause pain, inflammation, and stiffness, which limits range of motion and flexibility. Spinal adjustments help to improve range of motion in the neck, back and other parts of the body.

  5. Improves Health and Immunity
  6. Subluxations prevent the nervous system from functioning well. It can also prevent the brain from sending important information to the body. Chiropractic adjustments correct subluxations along the nervous system, causing the immune system to function properly.

  7. Improves Arthritis
  8. Aging and degenerative conditions can cause pain, inflammation, and stiffness, which limits range of motion and flexibility. Spinal adjustments help to improve range of motion in the neck, back and other parts of the body.

  9. Decreased Joint Degeneration
  10. Joint degeneration occurs due to aging. However, a misalignment in the spine (subluxations) can cause the vertebrae and the discs to wear out rapidly. Regular chiropractic adjustments help to prevent premature joint degeneration and back problems.

  11. Helps to Prevent Falls
  12. Fall injuries are common among the elderly, most resulting in fractures. Chiropractic adjustments normalize the mechanoreceptors of the cervical spine, which helps to improve coordination. In addition, chiropractors provide stretching and exercise programs, which help to increase strength, mobility, flexibility, balance and coordination.
