Chiropractic is effective care for seniors
There is a misconception that chiropractic is too aggressive, or that the adjustments are too forceful for aging bodies, that is simply untrue. The fact is that every patient we see receives a completely individualized treatment based on their unique body and set of conditions; that includes seniors. Chiropractic is not too forceful for an older body; in fact, in tandem with your primary care physician, chiropractic helps seniors maintain mobility and independence of movement. Let's find out why more and more seniors are turning to the complementary care that chiropractic provides.
Chiropractic for senior healthcare
To begin with, all of the modalities we use are fine-tunable. By that we mean that depending on the age and condition of our patient, our methods can be made more gentle to accommodate. We understand the struggles of being a senior: our spines are being forced to reckon with decades of wear and tear. This wear and tear is then joined by accelerating levels of muscle and bone loss that makes the support network for our spines more precarious. Balance, coordination and mobility all come under threat in this compromised situation. But rest assured, chiropractic is designed to address all of these problems. We work with your primary care to create a complementary care regime that will help slow down the rate of degeneration and improve your well being in the mean time.
