Chiropractic for Adults Chiropractic Medicine is about helping people live healthier, fuller lives. While typically thought of as 'bone doctors', chiropractors actually focus on the nervous system and painlessly adjusting the vertebral column in order to effect the nervous system and regain proper bio-mechanical function of joints. The intention of the chiropractic adjustment is to remove all disruptions or distortions of this energy flow that may be caused by slight vertebral misalignments. Chiropractors are trained to locate these restrictions and then to remove them, thereby restoring the normal flow of nerve energy in terms of both quality and quantity. Chiropractic for Seniors Many seniors are unaware of the health-improving benefits of chiropractic care. Chiropractic can safely reduce pain, increase mobility and range of motion in the extremities, help increase balance and coordination, and decrease joint degeneration. Chiropractic care leads to better health.
