Chiropractic and the elderly

older_man_backpain
 As we age our muscles weaken, our joints become less  flexible, and our tissues overall become less hydrated.  Decades of wear and tear on our joints lead to  arthritis.

 Our  digestive tract also becomes weaker and more  susceptible  to  damage and bleeding. Since these are also  common  side-effects of anti-  inflammatory medications it is  important to limit their use. Although the  aging process is  inevitable, we can do a lot to slow down  the process with proper natural  prevention.

Chiropractic care and healthy lifestyle habits are  the best protection.

Once arthritis and degeneration have set it they  are not reversible. Chiropractic may help in pain  relief, pain management, maintaining   function,  and in preventing further  degeneration.

Treatment is gentler  according to  condition and patient tolerance.
