Are my Bones to Fragile?
Are my Bones to Fragile for a Chiropractic Adjustment? Chiropractic care is increasing in popularity these days for a variety of illnesses, not just back or neck pain. Sometimes the question is: is this type of treatment a good idea for the elderly? Or are my bones to fragile for a chiropractic adjustment?
Chiropractors are mostly known for their neck and low back adjustments (spinal manipulation), so people believe that’s all they are going to get when going to one of them. Doctor of Chiropractic are trained to examine and screen patients and customize a rehabilitation plan depending on their condition. Chiropractors are trained in nutrition, physiotherapy modalities (ultrasound, electric stim, etc.), therapeutic and postural exercises, as well as manual therapy and different types of spinal adjustments (from joint mobilization to gentle and to aggressive adjustments).
Many times, people that suffer from various types of arthritis or osteoporosis are hesitant to try chiropractic care. Let me assure you that a Chiropractic Doctor will begin by taking a comprehensive medical history to understand your state of health. At your initial visit, the chiropractor will perform a physical exam, and he/she may order or ask for imaging tests, such as x-rays or MRI. From there, your chiropractor will develop a treatment plan for you.
If your condition is advanced osteoporosis or any type of arthritis, visit your chiropractor of your trust, he/she will customize a gentle treatment plan that is right for you, keeping your well-being.
