The elderly and Chiropractic

By Dr. Brian Broskoskie | Jun 28, 2013

Chiropractic can help people of all ages, there is no upper limit. My oldest patient so far is ninety six years of age! Indeed, with older patients, the chiropractor employs gentle techniques that are carefully adapted to her or his more fragile physique. Contrary to some beliefs, many problems such as arthritis and osteoporosis are absolutely not an obstacle to chiropractic treatment.

Surviving a lifetime of work and play, it is normal to accumulate wear and tear in any joint, especially those bearing weight continuously.
Disc degeneration and arthritis are ways in which the body responds to wear and tear of the vertebral column. With regular chiropractic care, it is possible to slow down or in some cases stop the stages of the degenerative process, and enjoy a pain free and better quality retirement. As your chiropractor, we can provide a preventative program of treatment for you. We will be happy to spend all time needed to explain your problem and tailor your treatment to your personal needs.

Even if x-rays show advanced arthritis, we can improve the function of your vertebral column or other joints by mobilization and manipulative therapy, thus alleviating your pain and stiffness.

The degree of arthritis is not correlated with the degree of pain you feel.

Arthritis of the spinal column does not always cause back pain, but when this happens, it means that the degeneration may be already at an advanced stage: on the surface of the vertebrae deposits of calcium are formed, resulting in reduced flexibility. When this happens you may feel very stiff and often painful.
