CHIROPRACTIC FOR ELDERLY
Chiropractic adjustments can help the range of motion in the spine and extremities, thus potentially allowing elderly people to do more activities without discomfort.
When the spine is function optimally there may be better proprioception (sense of body awareness).
If there is better proprioception due to chiropractic care it is much less likely for an elderly person to have falls.
