A 2018 Southern Digest article suggests that chiropractic care can assist the quality of life of an aging population. In the United States, approximately 100 million seniors suffer from chronic pain, with many seeking alternatives to pharmaceutical pain management. Chiropractic care, the article states, may be the way forward.
The most common types of chronic pain found in the U.S. include back and neck pain, with patients, often finding that “[it] becomes a disease in its own right.” The article continues to say that even active seniors are still susceptible to this type of pain; as a result of dehydrated muscles, spinal discs and ligaments. However, Chiropractors can provide relief for these patients through “hands-on techniques that enhance flexibility, muscle strength, and a range of motion.”
