Chiropractic care is for everyone. Roughly 13% of the population is over age 65 and these folks have experienced the aging process firsthand. It’s important for everyone to have quality healthcare, which includes chiropractic care. Here’s how regular chiropractic care benefits seniors.
Many seniors report experiencing chronic pain due to aging and chiropractic care can help relieve that. Much of this chronic pain is due to spinal related conditions and this is where proper chiropractic care is most effective. Chiropractors are specifically trained to identify and treat subluxations instead of prescribing an anti-inflammatory to mask the symptoms.
As we age, we lose proprioception, the sense of body awareness, which contributes to our balance. This can lead to missteps and falls. Chiropractic care can help restore balance and coordination thereby decreasing the risk of falling.
Increased Range of Motion
Chiropractic care has repeatedly shown that it can increase the range of motion in the spine and extremities. Regular adjustments to increase range of motion can allow your loved one to pick up his/her grandchild or better their golf game.
Growing older doesn’t mean you have to stop living the life you love. If you’re experiencing chronic pain, imbalance, poor range of motion, or a host of other ailments, chiropractic care is the answer.
