5 Amazing Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Seniors

February 22, 2014

In a three-year study conducted on people 75 years of age and older, those who received regular chiropractic care were healthier and more active than those that did not. In fact, 87 percent of chiropractic patients reported excellent health and movement, while only 67 percent of non-chiropractic patients reported the same. Although there are a multitude of benefits, we will be discussing five amazing advantages of chiropractic care for seniors.

Excellent Health and Well-Being

Chiropractic adjustments re-align the spine and work to correct subluxations which can affect the nerve system. Seniors that receive regular chiropractic care report better sleep, the ability to partake in hobbies, activities and better overall health and well-being than those who do not.

Less Joint Degeneration

Our bodies are made up of moving parts, and like all moving parts, they can be subject to degeneration over time. If the vertebrae of the spine are misaligned this can cause premature wear and arthritic changes that impede movement and cause pain. Chiropractic adjustments help re-align the spine and results in less joint degeneration due to premature wear.

Pain Management

Chiropractic care can help relieve back and joint pain caused by misalignment of the spine. Subluxations interfere with the nerves and sensitive soft tissue structures of the spine. Pain medications are often harmful and merely mask the symptoms where chiropractic addresses and corrects the root cause of the pain.

Increased Range of Motion

Not only does chiropractic care for seniors improve range of motion in the spine, it also improves limb movement. With the spine properly aligned, movements such as bending and raising your arms and legs are much easier and less painful.

Improved Balance and Coordination

Seniors often have trouble with balance and coordination, which can lead to dangerous falls. This is caused by subluxation in the neck, which interferes with the information your brain is sending to your body. Chiropractic care can improve this vital communication.
