Chiropractic Care and Older Adults

More and more older adults are seeking care from chiropractors like our specialist at Royal Chiropractic and Dental Centers, and it’s no wonder. We’re living longer and have a greater expectation of enjoying a healthy, active lifestyle during our golden years. Chiropractic care creates a natural, drug-free path to healing and wellness that is especially suited to people for whom maintaining mobility and independence are essential.

Chiropractic care uses safe, non-invasive methods to treat pain and stiffness due to arthritis, tendonitis and other conditions affecting the back, neck, knees, hips or other areas of the musculoskeletal system. A gentle, hands-on spinal manipulation known as an adjustment is used to address low back pain, neck pain and headaches, which are among the most common complaints our patients report.

Here are some of the benefits older adults experience through chiropractic care:

  • Reducing the likelihood of falls — the leading cause of injury and death among older adults — and promoting greater mobility and coordination by stimulating special cells in the cervical spine.
  • Providing effective, drug-free pain relief through natural treatments that tap into the body’s ability to heal itself.
  • Promoting a stronger immune system and overall health through proper spinal alignment, which increases blood flow throughout the body.
  • Elevating the energy level and mood, while lowering stress and the need for medication.

Chiropractic is not a one-size-fits-all system, and it’s about much more than just treating a patient’s symptoms. Each patient is evaluated and treated as an individual, using a holistic approach that takes into consideration all facets of their family and medical history, and other factors which may have an impact on their health and well-being. Our staff takes special pride in listening to our patients and making them comfortable as we begin working together.
