Elderly

As we age, our bodies begin to slow down. Our muscles atrophy, joints become less flexible and tissues become less hydrated. This is an unfortunate-but-true fact, but it doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. With a helping hand from NT Chiropractic, you can look forward to this golden time in your life.

Receiving regular chiropractic adjustments at an elderly age can help with a host of ailments. It can relieve pain, aid in pain management, help maintain function of the body and aid in the prevention of further bodily degeneration. Chiropractic adjustments can also lead to increased balance and coordination, increased mobility and range of motion, decreased arthritic joint pain and minimized risks of fall injuries. Chiropractic care for the elderly is administered safely and gently without the use of quick thrusts and helps promote a healthy lifestyle.

Recent research has shown that elderly patients who have received chiropractic care in addition to traditional medical regimens had fewer hospitalizations and relied on fewer medications than patients who received only traditional medical care.
