Senior Care: Awesome Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Seniors

Many seniors are unaware of the outstanding benefits that are possible through regular chiropractic care. Van Ness Chiropractic has compiled a list of 5 benefits that chiropractic care provides for seniors.

Pain Relief

Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Seniors - seniors smiling togetherChiropractic care is one of the most effective and safest forms of healthcare to treat pain due to spinal related conditions. Chiropractic is so effective because most causes of spinal disorders are related to subluxations (misalignments of the vertebrae) of the spine and strain on the surrounding soft tissue structures. We are specifically trained to identify and treat subluxations and their subsequent effect on the central nervous system. Anti-inflammatory medication and pain relievers merely mask the symptoms and have many undesirable side effects.

Increased Range of Motion

Chiropractic care has been shown repeatedly to increase not only the range of motion of the spine, but also in the extremities. Increasing your range of motion will make it possible to bend down to pick up the grandkids, garden without pain, or get an extra 40 yards of distance out of your driver on the golf course. In many cases, this increase in range of motion immediately follows chiropractic adjustments.

Improved Balance and Coordination

Injuries due to poor balance and coordination are extremely common. According to the CDC, falls are responsible for 90% of the 850,000 fractures that occur annually in adults over 65.

Studies have shown that chiropractic care stimulates joint receptors in the cervical spine. This stimulation is thought to restore or normalize function which leads to improvements in balance and coordination.

Decreased Joint Degeneration

A subluxated (misaligned) spine is much like a misaligned wheel on an automobile. This misalignment will cause the spine (and the wheel) to wear out prematurely. Since all moving parts will eventually wear down over time, it is very important to get your spine aligned regularly. Chiropractic care decreases spinal degeneration and other arthritic changes by normalizing the spinal alignment and reducing spinal stress.

Increased Health and Well-Being

Yes, chiropractic care provides far more than just pain relief. Feeling good, staying healthy, and doing the things that make you happy are what keeps us looking forward to each new day. Regular chiropractic care increases your quality of life, health, and well-being. Chiropractic care also has an outstanding record of safety and effectiveness.

I’ve dealt with lower back pain for many years. After having 2 kids in 2 years it became too much and I went to a back pain doctor who put me through 5 weeks of physical therapy. Unfortunately that didn’t work and was very frustrating because I really worked hard at it, stopped running and would do the daily recommended exercises and stretches. My wonderful neighbor recommended I come here and within my first appointment I left feeling much better! Im excited for me new health journey with Van Ness Chiropractic!

I’ve been to many chiropractors for upper back and neck issues and Van Ness Chiropractic is the best! Dr. Jeff and Dr. Rani are amazing! I went in with terrible pain and they had me feeling better in no time. The office is very relaxing and everyone is so friendly and kind. Scheduling is always easy, even when I need care last minute, they alway make time for me! I always look forward to all my visits with the team!

After rounds and rounds at many other chiropractors with no success, I was referred to Van Ness Chiro! The doctors listen to your concerns and address them accordingly. I have been an avid patient for almost a year and every adjustment has been different! This speaks volumes as they truly adjust what is necessary versus the “basic” for everyone. I have also thoroughly enjoyed the additional services that are offered such as electro therapy (included with you adjustment), acupuncture, cupping and massage! The office staff is also very understanding and accommodating! 100% recommend!

Dr. Jeff Parkin & Dr. Rani Sabri are amazing! This is my first chiropractic experience & I would recommend Van Ness Chiropractic to anyone. The atmosphere in the office is completely relaxing. I look forward to each visit. I've also tried the acupuncture sessions and truly love them. Leaving each session, I feel relaxed, renewed & rejuvenated!

Van Ness Chiropractic is a place that cares for its’ patients like they are family. I’ve had many freak accidents and have called them first for help. Each provider wants to help you be at your best, and it’s rare these days to feel cared for after leaving the doctor. So grateful for them!

I have been to many chiropractors before for low back issues. Van Ness Chiropractic is the best I have experienced. Dr. Van Ness is very knowledgeable, professional has kept me moving without pain. Everyone in the practice is friendly and caring. I appreciate that they offer alternative remedies, such as dry needling to alleviate sports injuries. Thank you Dr. Rani! I highly recommend the practice.

I can't say enough about Dr. Jason Van Ness and the team at Van Ness Chiropractic! When people ask if I know a good Chiropractor in town, without hesitation, I recommend Van Ness Chiropractic. Not only for "fixing" what's broken, but for wellness maintenance, too. I see people in the office ranging from babies to elderly, athletes of all kinds, people who travel far and wide and make time, when in town, to visit Dr. Van Ness. Van Ness Chiropractic offers a vainly of services and is not limited to Chiropractic care. Besides my regular Chiropractic visits, I have taken advantage of Acupuncture and Massage Therapy. My quality of life is enriched by regular visits to Dr. Jason Van Ness and his team!Stop by and meet the team...you'll be thankful you did.

Dr.Van Ness has built himself a great place for health. I’ve been seeing him since he did a residency with Dr.Cox, late 1990s. As a legacy patient he has always kept me straight. He even came in on a weekend to assist my wife with an issue. His place isn’t just straightening crooked people. He treats young athletes to the “ole guys” equally. His center of health has a variety of therapists to get you the proper care you want.

I didn’t even know I had mild back problems until I came here. Very thorough and very friendly staff! I love the fact that it’s also a clean and safe place as they wipe surfaces often. Definitely recommend!
