Adjustments for Seniors
As our bodies age, it becomes more and more important to stay healthy and active. While bones and muscles may weaken, it is still possible to be out and about and doing the things we love. Many senior citizens face chronic pain or other issues related to the body deteriorating over time. Luckily, CORE Health Centers of Ashland KY provides seniors chiropractic care services that will help provide relief. The chiropractic adjustment for seniors is a therapeutic manipulation that uses controlled force, leverage, direction, amplitude, and velocity directed at specific joints. For seniors who are struggling with decreased mobility, CORE Health Centers’ chiropractic care has been show to help restore this deficit. Some seniors may find themselves able to bend over again and play with grand-kids or garden. Others who enjoy golf may find an increase in their drive distance. These small improvements can lead to a large increase in overall quality of life for all patients.
Is chiropractic care safe for seniors?
Some seniors may be concerned about receiving spinal manipulation due to the delicate nature of their bodies. However, CORE Health Centers’ chiropractors have been specially trained to treat the sensitive needs of seniors in a safe and effective way. The first step is to examine the spine in order to find any vertebrae that are out of place. These subluxations can lead to many problems, from pain due to the misalignment to immune systems because of nerve blockage. Once our chiropractors have determine the cause of pain, they will then begin to provide chiropractic care techniques to help relief the pain and set the spine correct. Our chiropractors take into consideration the nature of the aging spine and the many abnormalities present to provide a strategically effective, safe, and non-invasive treatment plan. Through the use of gentle adjustive and mobilization techniques and incorporation of stretching and exercise programs, spinal pain is reduced, spinal stresses are decreased, flexibility and mobility are improved, and degeneration is minimized.
CORE Health Centers of Ashland KY look after clients ranging from just days old to over 90 years old. Although our chiropractic care techniques vary greatly, our aim is still the same. We want to ensure healthy and correct spinal and nervous system function to enable each individual to be at their best.
Why do seniors need chiropractic care?
Regular chiropractic care helps all kinds of people, young and old, improve health and mobility and regain control of their lives. Chiropractic care for the “third age” or senior population will help manage and even eliminate acute and chronic pain, increase flexibility, improve mobility and function, restore postural alignment, enhance balance, de-stress and tune the nervous system, improve general health and wellbeing. Many seniors suffer from balance and coordination issues, chronic pain, and decreased energy. These problems are often caused by previous injuries or degenerative changes in the cervical spine, or the neck area. The chiropractic care services at CORE Health Centers of Ashland KY can help seniors to restore decreased coordination by stimulating joint receptors in the neck. This stimulation helps normalize joint receptor functioning, which controls balance and coordination, and can help seniors avoid the need for additional care. A recent study found that seniors who received chiropractic care were far more likely to remain in their homes versus seniors that did not receive care. Chiropractic can be a safe and effective way for seniors to stay healthy, active, and independent. Speak to a CORE Health Centers’ chiropractor about how our chiropractic care can help you today.
