Back pain and reduced or limited mobility negatively affect daily life, especially for older adults. Some may think that chiropractic services may not be beneficial for the elderly and could even be detrimental. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth, and many seniors are misinformed about the topic. Chiropractic care is a safe and effective treatment for older adults: it can lessen pain and get seniors back to enjoying life. A chiropractor is well-versed in an older adult’s musculoskeletal system and age-related changes, such as muscle loss and decreased flexibility. All treatment plans are customizable to the patient’s individual needs and abilities. Spinal manipulation, nutritional counseling, and fall prevention may be incorporated into the treatment plan.
A well-adjusted spine has health benefits throughout the body, and a chiropractor can be a vital resource for information to help people stay well. Geriatric chiropractic care has been shown to reduce the risk of falling. Along with education, exercise, and environmental changes, adjustments can help elderly people stay safe from falls.Schedule an APpointment
