Chiropractic for Seniors

Happy couple

Getting older doesn’t have to mean accepting chronic pain

We all know that aging is a part of life, and while we all want to live our lives to the fullest, society will often have us believe that aches and pains must simply come with the territory.

For seniors, this often means trying to accept chronic pain as a daily part of their lives. However, for those willing to explore chiropractic care as part of their routine, seniors are a group who can gain a great deal of benefit out of spinal wellness – far more than most people might realize.

Chiropractic is a truly effective way for seniors to manage, and even eliminate, pain. In addition, they can experience improved mobility, increased flexibility, restored postural alignment, enhanced stability, and a general improvement their overall way of life.

As we age, dramatic changes begin to take place within the spine. Discs, ligaments, joints, muscles and other tissues become weaker, less hydrated, more fibrous, and less able to handle the stresses of day-to-day life. As the ability to heal from injuries can decrease over our lifetime, preventative care and maintaining wellness becomes that much more important. The older people in our lives are sometimes victims of slip and fall accidents – be it getting out of the bathtub, walking outside on an icy patch of sidewalk, or even something as simple as getting out of a chair. The improvement in balance and coordination that chiropractic care provides can decrease the likelihood of these incidents.

Chiropractic allows seniors to implement a non-invasive and easy approach to health care into their lives. With gentle adjustment techniques as well as the incorporation of stretching and exercise, elderly patients will discover that this simple treatment offers a multitude of improvements to their lifestyle. This is especially relevant when it allows freedom from the constant administration of pain medication, along with their negative side effects.

Regardless of age, pain should never be a part of anyone’s daily life. Many senior patients in our clinic have seen the benefits of spinal wellness – do you have someone in your life that could use the same assistance? Contact the office today.
