Chiropractic for seniors

The number of candles on your birthday cake is certainly not directly related to your health. We all know older folks who are young at heart and younger folks who seem older. However, the fact remains that with age, many seniors find themselves vulnerable to injury and pain, which may have been caused by a multitude of factors over time. Canadian chiropractors work hard to help people live healthier lives by reducing the risk of falls, injury and disability. They can assess your strength, mobility, function and balance; they can advise you on exercises, a nutritional plan, and preventive strategies.


An aging population is more likely to suffer from the following conditions:

  • Osteoarthritis – the deterioration of joint cartilage
  • Spinal stenosis – the compression of the nerve roots caused by a narrowing of the spinal canal, which causes pain and numbness
  • Degenerative meniscal lesion
  • Wear and tear type injuries
  • Osteoporosis – a disease characterized by decreased bone mass and deterioration of bone tissue

What chiropractic can bring to the senior person:

  • Pain relief
  • Improved range of motion and function
  • Slowing the progression of joint degeneration
  • Posture correction
  • Improved balance
  • Reduced risk of falling
