When thinking of Chiropractic care, most people often think of harsh practices which involve a lot of "twisting" and "cracking". This would definitely deter people from thinking chiropractic care could benefit the senior community. However, senior citizens could benefit tremendously from chiropractic care.
In fact, the Minnesota Chiropractic Association issued a release about the benefits of Chiropractic care for senior citizens. Dr. Christian Kollar, president of the MCA, noted, "Seniors who utilize chiropractic care experience fewer symptomatic chronic conditions, less days in hospitals and nursing homes and more mobility than elderly non-chiropractic patients."
The Minnesota Chiropractic Association also emphasized the importance and reasoning behind senior citizens receiving regular chiropractic care saying, "The MCA encourages seniors to see a chiropractor regularly. Chiropractic adjustments can correct spinal and extremity misalignments in addition to reducing nerve irritation, improving circulation and release muscle tension, which all help the body return to a balanced, relaxed state. Chiropractic care can also have a positive impact on your health by aiding in preventing a variety of health problems in the future."
