Many seniors are unaware of the outstanding benefits that are possible through regular chiropractic care. Here is a list of seven of the most frequent benefits that chiropractic care provides for seniors.
Increased Range of Motion of the Spine and Extremities
Chiropractic care has been shown repeatedly to increase not only the range of motion of the spine but also in the extremities. Increasing a person's range of motion can positively affect lives in many ways.
Increased Balance and Coordination
Many problems in balance and coordination in the aging population have been shown to come from injury or degenerative changes to the cervical spine (neck region).
Decreased Joint Degeneration
A subluxated (misaligned) spine is much like a misaligned wheel on an automobile.
Chiropractic care is one of the most effective and safest forms of health care to treat pain due to spinal related conditions. Chiropractic is so effective because most causes of spinal disorders are related to abnormalities of the spine and the surrounding soft tissue structures. This misalignment will cause the spine (and the wheel) to wear out prematurely.
Improved Health and Well-Being
We commonly ask our patients what changes they notice once they are out of pain. Here are some regular responses we hear every day:
- I feel great! I can sleep through the night!
- Now I can plant in the garden!
