The Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Older Adults

As our bodies age, we will experience muscle and joint pain, and reduced mobility. We may also experience chronic pain due to osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, or spinal stenosis. Chiropractic care provides an evidence-based approach for managing these conditions.

How can Gelley Chiropractic help the aging adult?

1.  We use gentle manual techniques and modified treatments that are suitable for older patients to ensure a safe and comfortable experience. We utilize various treatments, including spinal manipulation, soft tissue therapy, stretching, and exercises

2.  Chiropractic care reduces inflammation, improves joint mobility, relaxes tight muscles, and relieves pain.  Our care helps seniors regain mobility, making it easier to perform valued daily activities and to maintain an active lifestyle. 

3.  Falls are a significant concern for older adults and may affect independence and the ability to remain at home. Our care focuses not only on the spine but also on the pelvis and hips, which play a crucial role in maintaining balance and coordination.

4.  Chiropractic care goes beyond addressing specific symptoms and aims to optimize overall health and well-being. We provide lifestyle advice, including exercise recommendations, nutritional guidance, and home safety suggestions, to enhance the quality of life in the senior years.

5.  At Gelley Chiropractic, our care is always individualized and considers the unique health concerns of each senior. We will work closely to understand and address each patient’s specific goals, limitations, and expectations.
