How do we mean by elderly? What used to be considered “old” at 60 is now only “senior” at 80. How many people can you think of who look as though they’re in their fifties, and then you discover they are well over 65 or even 70?
To find that you’re adding on the years can be a little daunting for some – but it doesn’t mean that you have to put up with the discomfort of aching backs, shoulders or limbs. What tends to happen though is that aching limbs and joints are often disregarded due to the “I’m just getting old” syndrome. Well, just because you may be adding a few years, is no reason to put up with pain or even discomfort.
Senior age groups often ask whether they can take advantage of chiropractic care and if it will help to alleviate problems with shoulder, hip and other joints without jeopardising themselves. The answer is a definite “yes”. There are a number of treatable conditions of the body as age increases.
