Falling is one of the most common problems for seniors today. In fact, studies indicate that more than one-third of elders 65 and older fall each year. Injuries related to falling can account for a vast majority of the bone fractures in senior adults. It can also result in injuries to the knees, and other parts of the body that bear the brunt of the impact with the ground or another object. Regular senior chiropractic care reduces the risk of falls. Our care also provides increased balance, coordination, flexibility, mobility, and strength.
This further reduces the possibility of bone fractures and other issues associated with falling as we age. Even better, it has also been noted that regular chiropractic care prevents the need for many seniors to move into assisted living facilities or nursing homes. Older persons who take advantage of regular chiropractic care frequently have fewer problems associated with issues like arthritis. This means that they are typically better able to care for themselves in their own homes than those who do not seek regular care.
