In a 2016 article, the Canadian Chiropractic Association (CCA) highlight the benefits of chiropractic care for seniors, specifically to improve the quality of life of an aging population. With life expectancy now at 80 for men and 84 for women, the quality of life for seniors is even more important. The probability of physical discomfort or injuries increases with age, with approximately one in three Canadians over the age of 65 likely to suffer a slip or a fall at least once a year, leading to prolonged aches and pains.
In addition to age-related falls, seniors are more susceptible to physical disorders such as Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis, Spinal stenosis and more. Chiropractors can assist in pain management through several exercises focused on the increase in strength, mobility and balance. Chiropractic care can impact a senior’s quality of life through
• Improving physical motion and function
• Lessening the progression of degeneration in the joints
• Helping correct posture and balance
