How Safe Is Geriatric Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic procedures may seem rough for some people. However, an experienced chiropractor can adjust the treatment depending on the physical characteristics of the patient, to ensure the treatment is appropriate. Instead of following a specific procedure, we will use a unique and safe practice that fits the individual patient, even the frail and elderly.
The Benefits of Geriatric Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care for the elderly has several benefits, including:
1. Treating Back and Joint Pain
Back and joint pains are chronic ailments that can contribute to the frailty of the elderly. Due to these types of pain, a person may opt out of exercising, which can result in the pain becoming worse. The pain can lead to other conditions such as depression.
2. Preventing Falls
According to the CDC, one in four elderly adults falls every year. This makes falls a leading cause of injuries in the U.S., especially for those over 65 years old. Falling is so dangerous that 40%-60% of those who fall do not return to their normal lives, but are instead taken to nursing homes. Chiropractic care can be used to strengthen certain muscle groups and restore your range of motion which can help prevent falling.
3. Prevent Diseases
If you have a properly aligned spine, you are generally healthier. Regular adjustments of the spine can prevent other health issues including depression, diabetes, hypertension, osteoporosis, and asthma. Along with the chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Goldberg educates you about living a healthier lifestyle and can provide a foundation to improve your quality of life.
