Chiropractic Visits for Senior Citizens

By Randi Morse

One common misconception about chigetropractic care is that it is only for those who are extremely active or for those who are rehabilitating some sort of injury or surgery. The reality is that seeing a chiropractor regularly is a great way to help keep your body in shape and healthy. This is especially true for senior citizens. People over the age of 65 can do a lot to help their health situation by seeing a chiropractor regularly. When we age, our body starts to break down. We are much more likely to experience musculoskeletal pain, especially in the low back region. Senior citizens who are experiencing these symptoms may want to visit a chiropractor soon.

Mobility Issues

It can be very difficult, as you age, to begin having problems with your mobility. It is normal for a human to slow down a bit as they get older; the body is not designed to be able to sustain a very active physical lifestyle for 70 years. But senior citizens who are finding that their back pain makes it extremely difficult to fulfill their daily activities may have a joint restriction affecting their situation. Joint restrictions are very common, so it's possible for someone to have a joint restriction in their spine for years at a time without realizing that the symptoms they have are caused by that very restriction.

Pain

My husband and I both joke that the older we get, the more we are in pain. This is a common sentiment found in many memes across the internet. Having a few aches and pains is normal, experiencing severe pain is not. Gentle spinal adjustments may be able to help relieve any tension that is currently being held in your back due to a joint restriction, helping to lower, or even eliminate, the back pain you are currently experiencing. 

Senior citizens shouldn't be concerned about visiting the chiropractor. It's natural for an older person to be worried about the fragility of their bones and the pain they're experiencing, but at The Joint Chiropractic you'll find chiropractors who are able to gently manipulate the spine in order to help ease the pain you're feeling. The Joint Chiropractic also offers affordable visits so that even those seniors on a budget can afford to get relief for their pain.
