Is Chiropractic safe for seniors?
Yes, Chiropractic is safe for seniors and in fact some seniors will find a great improvement in their pain with Chiropractic. As our spines age and degenerate, they don’t move as well and the ligaments and muscles around the joints become stiff and full of scar tissue. Chiropractic may also help improve balance and coordination (www.seniorcitizensguide.com) and may also assist in conditions such as cervicogenic dizziness, a common condition in the elderly.
If you are a member of DVA or have been allocated treatments by your GP through Medicare, Niki will be happy to take care of you in the gentlest, most comfortable manner.
What will the chiropractor do to help?
Chiropractic focuses on improving the movement of the joints within the spine and peripheral joints and using a small tool called the activator, which can aid in improved flexibility, balance and coordination for seniors, in a safe manner.
