Chiropractic care for over 55's is more than just treating back pain

Chiropractic is not just about treating your pain but your total well being.

To help you to recover from your pain your chiropractor may recommend stretching exercises, aerobic exercies, dietary advice, and other prevention strategies which may include vitamins and relaxation.

Chiropractic is a drugless therapy which may improve your quality of life as well as providing you with pain relief.

Chiropractic techniques are modified to suit your condition, size and age.

Well trained in health assessment, diagnosis, radiographic studies, health promotion and illness prevention, chiropractors are well-positioned to provide many primary health-care services to over 55's patients (xvii)
