Aging is a natural process for all of us but how we choose to treat our bodies throughout our lives can greatly affect our function and health in the long term. Chiropractic treatment in the elderly population is aimed at maintaining as much movement and function as we can to ensure continued flexibility and strength thereby potentially reducing risk of injury and falls whilst maintaining continued independence.
A recent research study found that Chiropractic care was able to increase sensation and joint awareness in an elderly population therefore potentially decreasing the risk of falls and injuries by improving reaction times!
