As you age, your body’s ability to repair itself decreases. Bones, tendons, and ligaments surrounding muscles may struggle to maintain the kind of strength you had when you were younger. This has the potential to lead to injuries and breaks. At Houston County Chiropractic, we often work with seniors who are seeking back pain relief but who are also worried about potential back damage following a chiropractic adjustment. We do not take a blanket approach to chiropractic care. Each individual is different and receives tailor-made assistance. When working with seniors, we pair gentle adjustments with strengthening exercises to ensure the safest and most effective care possible.
Beyond chiropractic adjustments and attention to improving the curve of your spine, our chiropractor will also instruct you in strengthening exercises. These exercises do not involve extreme weight training or anything of that nature. These are basic moves you can perform at home that will help strengthen the stabilizing muscles within your body as well as improve your posture. Over time, your posture has likely worsened due to any number of living conditions, including the position you sleep in or even past surgeries. These strengthening exercises allow us to restore your posture while reducing the level of pain you deal with daily. These exercises allow you to experience the full range of benefits associated with chiropractic adjustments.
