Chiropractic and active ageing
As we grow older, remaining as active and as mobile as possible becomes ever more important and chiropractic in later life can help you remain mobile and active. A high percentage of our patients are over 60 years of age and we regularly see people in their 70’s and 80’s – plus we have a few patients in their 90’s!
McTimoney Chiropractic takes into consideration the nature of the ageing skeleton to provide a strategically effective, safe and non-invasive treatment plan. Through the use of gentle adjustments plus mobilisation techniques, and incorporating stretching and exercise programs where appropriate, flexibility and mobility are improved. Focusing on the underlying skeletal misalignments, your chiropractor will work with you in order to reduce discomfort, increase mobility and help keep you as active as you want to be.
Your chiropractor will take a detailed case history, including a comprehensive medical history, before physically assessing you (including taking your blood pressure), to ensure it is safe for you to receive treatment. You will be told the results of this assessment and also how many sessions your chiropractor thinks you will need to help or resolve your individual problem. A number of our patients have previously had strokes, have osteoporosis, diabetes or high blood pressure when they come to see us, and treatment can safely and easily be tailored to reflect these health conditions.
The average course of treatment is around 4 to 6 sessions for most problems, and a lot of patients report maintenance treatments as also being very beneficial – helping to keep you functioning at your best on an ongoing basis, usually around twice a year but linked solely to you, and your individual health and lifestyle. Ideal to keep you at your best for that game of golf, keeping on top of that gardening or just meeting up with friends!
