The Truth About Elderly Chiropractic

Many chiropractors have difficulty treating the elderly. Much of this has to do with insufficient training and a lack of consideration for the three most important factors that typically impede results.

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis increases with age. It's harder to provide chiropractic care when bones have lost density.

Degeneration

As we age the body forms more bone spurs and joints stiffen. To undo this requires specialized care and effort.

Time

The skeletal system memory is long established in the elderly. Reversing decades of skeletal habits takes time.

Why Our Elder Chiropractic Works

 

Our chiropractors excel at treating Singapore elders because we acknowledge the patience, skill and time required to counter the factors listed above. The quicker we mobilize the joints properly, the faster you recover.

The Benefits of Elder Chiropractic Care

The universal answer given when a senior asks why they should try chiropractic care includes the following:

  • Increased Mobility
  • Better Balance
  • Improved Flexibility
  • Longterm Pain Relief
  • Alleviate Arthritis

While those are all true, they don't fully explain the benefit of elderly chiropractic care (aka "geriatric chiropractic"). Bone and joint issues occur when bones rub against each other, causing mechanical stress and inflammation. This is why fish oil and flax seed oil are so popular. These supplements can decrease inflammation in the body. However, they can't correct it, and the pain will endure. Even if you take flaxseed oil everyday, as long as the joints are rubbing, there will be inflammation. This is where chiropractic care comes in.

When bones hurt, or a loss of mobility occurs, people often turn to physiotherapists or physical therapy for help. But these primarily focus on the muscles, which is less effective for joint problems. Muscles should only be strengthened AFTER the joints are better aligned and bone rubbing is reduced. This allows the muscles to develop optimally.

So how does chiropractic care help seniors? Well, not only does chiropractic help the body by repositioning the joints and reducing mechanical stress, but it also paves the way for other treatments -- like supplements and physiotherapy -- to better help the body,. That's what we mean when we say our chiropractic treats the root cause, not just the symptoms.
