Geriatric Chiropractic Care

Many seniors and their advocates are seeking a better way to manage their health concerns as they age. If you or a loved one are experiencing back pain, loss of mobility, or trouble with other health conditions and dysfunctions, chiropractic is a safe and effective way to improve quality of life and create long term positive health outcomes.

At Chiropractic Family Wellness Center, we have a deep respect for and understanding of our elders’ needs, and are able to integrate a variety of gentle, effective treatments that have a great impact on general health and support wellbeing.

We modify treatment for our geriatric clients to use a gentler force attuned to specific health conditions and concerns.  Individuals with bone and joint-related symptoms, such as arthritis, scoliosis, and osteoporosis find relief through an individualized chiropractic treatment plan.  In fact, Chiropractic care is often the least invasive effective treatment for elders experiencing these conditions.1 While medical intervention is safe and necessary in certain cases, our hopes are to manage symptoms, alleviate stress, and improve immunity to help the body heal and thrive from the inside out, decreasing the chance of side effects and secondary complications. 

In addition to chiropractic treatment, we provide general advice, teach clients exercises and stretches, and offer lifestyle or diet changes with the aim of fully and holistically supporting you in your journey to optimum health.

Techniques

The chiropractic techniques used in senior care are varied and uniquely paired to each individual based on health history, current symptoms, and overall goals. There are, however, a few techniques that are used traditionally and have yielded great results for many elderly chiropractic clients.  

We thoroughly assess elderly clients’ health and wellness and formulate a plan that will safely and effectively recover lost health and mobility and maintain wellness for years to come. We frequently use Network Spinal Analysis technique.  This technique allows us to assess and treat areas of tension in and around your spine therefore giving the nervous system the ability to relax and more aptly respond to stress. The Diversified technique encompasses a wide variety of adjustment styles that allow our doctors to personalize each treatment. We tailor how we use Diversified Technique to suit our clients’ unique situations and conditions.  In your initial assessment, we directly and fully assess your spine, so that we completely understand what techniques to use and how much force is appropriate and safe for you. As traditional techniques evolve and new techniques arise, we ensure safety, comfort, and partnership in your treatment plan. 

Benefits and Expectations

Every person who comes to us seeking a partner in their healthcare is inherently unique and requires special thought and consideration when creating a chiropractic care plan. This is especially true for our elderly community who have experienced life longer and have a greater history of potential stress and trauma. As the body ages, its needs and subsequent therapy requirements change. While our first priority is the relief of present symptoms, our long-term goals lie in achieving and maintaining optimal well-being into the future.

Treatments are gentle and totally customized for your body’s needs and potential limitations.
