The most common complaint bringing older adults to AlignWell Chiropractic is musculoskeletal pain, most often in the lower back. Chiropractic services provided to seniors at AlignWell Chiropractic include patient assessment, maintenance of health, prevention of illness, and treatment of illness or injury.

Our seniors have reported benefits from chiropractic care to include:

  • Increased range of motion of the spine and extremities
  • Increased balance and coordination
  • Decreased risk of joint/disc degeneration
  • Treatment of back pain, extremity pain, neck pain, and chronic pain, among others

 In addition to treatment of spinal pain, research supports the effectiveness of spinal adjustments in addressing symptoms associated with co-morbid clinical conditions, including: COPD, constipation, depression (associated with back pain), Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, pneumonia, spinal stenosis, urinary incontinence, and osteoarthritic pain and dysfunction, especially of the knee.
