FAQ's for Seniors
Why should I go to a Chiropractor if I already take medication?
Chiropractors have the ability to fix the misalignments (subluxations) within the spine that cause pain and inflammation, without the use of medication. This means that the chiropractor fixes the underlying cause of the pain rather than masking the symptoms with medication and removing it only temporarily. This is key for a long-term correction. With at least 92% of seniors having at least one chronic condition, it is important for this demographic to find a way to find relief without the need to take medication.
Am I too old to see a chiropractor? Can I ever be pain-free for life?
You are never too old to start making good health choices! Chiropractic care is safe for the young and old and helps to improve the quality of life for everyone. Quality of life is essential for seniors, sometimes the permanent damage has been done, but with Chiropractic care we focus on preventing the escalation of health issues. It is normal for many seniors to assume that they will become stiffer and less capable of doing things as they age, but with the help of Chiropractic care, this does not have to be the reality.
It’s hard to say for sure if someone with chronic pain can ever live 100% pain free. Each Chiropractic adjustment improves the body’s ability to heal and keeps the joints mobile. This is important when we talk about the serious risks of falls in the elderly population. 33% of seniors fall every year, which often leads to more serious health issues after. Chiropractic care is helpful in this area as it helps to maintain joint mobility, improve balance and decrease chronic pain.
Will Chiropractic care help me with a chronic condition(s)?
Certain conditions that the elderly suffer from can be treated or co-treated with chiropractic care. Drs. Kace and Kaylee will consult with each patient and their primary care physician for the best results possible.
