3 Ways Chiropractic Care Can Help Your Elderly Relatives
It’s horrible to see an elderly loved one in pain. Watching a family member age can be tough, especially when aging brings them a multitude of unwanted effects.
But did you know that many of the aches, pains and problems that occur through aging can be managed, lessened and in some cases relieved, with the right strategies and resources?
Here at Chislehurst Chiropractic Clinic we’ve worked with hundreds of elderly patients. Many of them have reported that we’ve helped to ease the impact and symptoms of aging and made life more enjoyable for them in their mature years. In fact, we often hear “I now feel I have a spring in my step.” and “I feel 10 years younger!”
Here are the top 3 ways that Chiropractic Care can help improve an elderly relative’s quality of life:
Help To Increase & Maintain Mobility
One of the most common cases we see in the Clinic is decreased flexibility and a reduction in mobility. Being able to move around freely and comfortably, with a good range of movement, is important if you want your loved one to be able to maintain their independence and live a good quality of life.
Often, due to the side effects associated with reduced mobility and aging, our patients tend to lead a more sedentary lifestyle. This contributes to the stiffness and lack of flexibility.
Chiropractic Care can help your elderly relative by working to increase their flexibility, reduce stiffness and ensure the body is in alignment. This could help them reach a better range of movement and make it more comfortable for them to keep active and complete their daily tasks.
Help To Reduce Pain & Stiffness
People often put up with daily aches and pains because they believe that it’s just a part of growing older. In many cases, these aches and pains, often associated with arthritis, can be relieved with regular Chiropractic Care.
By identifying the root cause of the pain and working to correct any misalignments or imbalances, we can help to reduce the amount of pain and stiffness.
Help To Improve Balance To Reduce The Risk Of Dangerous Falls
A small fall can be a big problem for an elderly person, with many resulting in brakes, bruising and hospital visits. It’s such a common problem that most of our elderly patients tell us that they live in fear of falling.
But did you know that Chiropractic Care and lifestyle advice can really help to reduce the likelihood of having a fall?
By increasing flexibility and muscle movement, we can improve your elderly relative’s strength and balance. This could help them to be steadier on their feet, feel more confident and in turn, less likely to fall.
Here at Chislehurst Chiropractic Clinic we understand that everyone is unique and we take a kind, gentle approach to treating the elderly.
