Senior Chiropractic Care: Unlocking the Benefits

There's a common misconception that chiropractic care is only for younger adults, and that it's not safe or effective for seniors. However, many seniors can benefit greatly from chiropractic care. At Colony Chiropractic in The Villages, we offer senior chiropractic care.


Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Seniors

Chiropractic care can provide some important benefits for seniors. These benefits include pain relief, improved balance, and increased mobility.

Pain Relief

Pain relief is the most common reason people of any age visit the chiropractor. Chiropractic care can provide pain relief without invasive techniques or medications which only mask the symptoms. Your chiropractor can relieve your pain by treating the root cause, which is often spinal misalignment.

Improved Balance

Chiropractic care, particularly chiropractic adjustment, can also improve your balance. Falls are a major concern for seniors, so your balance is very important. When your body is in proper alignment, you will have better balance.

Increased Mobility and Range of Motion

Chiropractic care can also increase your mobility and range of motion. When your joints and spine are in proper alignment, you will have increased mobility. Your range of motion is also increased. This can be done with chiropractic adjustment. Therapeutic exercises, muscle stimulation, and laser therapy can also help improve your range of motion.

Restored Vitality

Chiropractic care can also restore your vibrancy and vitality. Correct spinal alignment allows your nervous system to function correctly. It also decreases inflammation and increases blood flow. This can give you more energy, and allow you to feel better overall. If you are in pain, getting pain relief can restore your energy and vitality as well.

Chiropractic Care for Seniors

Ironically, seniors may need chiropractic care even more than younger adults. As we age, our joints and spinal discs become worn. Our bones become more fragile as well. Chronic pain is also a very common complaint. These are a few reasons that seniors should consider chiropractic care.

Chiropractic care is a bit different from care for younger adults. Generally, chiropractic adjustments for seniors should be performed using low-force techniques. Pulstar is a type of chiropractic adjustment that is great for seniors. It uses an instrument that is computer-controlled for precise and gentle adjustments. In addition, your chiropractor may recommend therapeutic exercises, nutritional counseling, and regular exercise to help you stay as healthy as possible.
