Old age doesn’t have to mean sick age. It is possible to live a long, full life without being physically or mentally incapacitated. In fact, 85% of people over 65 have no serious health problems. It is also possible to stay physically and mentally healthy your entire lifetime, reverse or slow aging and recover physical and mental strength. 
Chiropractic For The Elderly
Chiropractic offers a non-medical alternative to the over-drugged older population who often suffer illness and death from medications. Chiropractic care frees the body from a serious form of health-damaging stress called the vertebral subluxation complex that causes premature aging by destroying vitality and weakening our natural healing ability.
Accepting that certain medical procedures have a place in our lives, chiropractors emphasize minimizing medical care as much as possible.
No one, of course, knows all the secrets of a living and healthy life, but clearly one of them is that a body free of vertebral subluxations is more flexible, balanced, stronger and healthier than a body with subluxations. Regular chiropractic spinal adjustments should be a part of every older person’s healthcare regime to help keep them younger and healthier at any age.
