Chiropractic for Seniors :
Is Chiropractic safe for seniors?
Yes it is. An initial evaluation is however made by the chiropractor to rule out any contraindication and assess if chiropractic can be beneficial to the patient in question.
Why and when to see a chiropractor?
Chiropractic can help alleviate pains that are related to conditions such as arthritis, sciatica, low back pain, neck pain, headaches, knee pain, hip pain… So if you have any of these symptoms, a chiropractor could help you by addressing the cause of the pain if it is related to the spine, joints, or muscles through the nervous system.
Chiropractic can also be a used as a preventive measure by keeping you, your nervous system, your joints, and your muscles in your optimum function in order to avoid the aches and pains that can be associated with age.
