Chiropractor for seniors in Moonee Ponds
As we age, it’s common to experience aches and pains. Our bodies gradually deteriorate and get harder to maintain. Our muscles, spinal discs, and ligaments get weaker - and we’re more likely to get injured.
Yet many elderly put these down to age and don’t bother to do anything about them - or they’ve done all they can and they’re still struggling with:
- Back pain
- Knee pain
- Shoulder pain
- Neck pain
- Muscle weakness
- Hunched posture
- Nerve pain
- Old injuries
- Falls injuries
Why consider chiropractic
Perhaps you want a more natural solution than surgery or medication to ease your pains and help improve your injuries. You may be tired of the side effects of some medication. Maybe you’d like to slow the degeneration of the ageing process.
For instance, half of Australians with arthritis report moderate to severe pain (AIWH, 2020). Not only that, arthritis can impact the way you move, your energy and sleep. That’s why the management of arthritis is more than just dealing with the pain. It’s helping to understand what you can expect, what your treatment options are (including whether surgery is likely to help or not) and how best to live with it.
You realise there are no guarantees, yet you’re open to trying something if it’s been proven to help others with the same complaints.
You value your independence and mobility - being active and being able to spend good quality time with your loved ones.
Safe techniques tailored to seniors
Our chiropractors are trained and experienced in helping seniors. They understand that a gentle approach is needed. They use low-force, safe, evidence-based techniques and advice.
Check out our frequently asked questions about chiropractors.
What to expect in your session
Your body has stories to tell so your chiropractor will listen. After performing a gentle physical examination, you’ll have a discussion with your chiropractor about what’s going on in your body and what therapy options you have.
You’ll have the choice to decide what you’d like:
Do you like deep pressure with massage or a softer approach?
Your seniors’ chiropractor might recommend softer techniques depending on how fragile your bones and body is.
Your chiropractor might recommend and refer you for bulk-billed x-rays to look at your bone and joint health. And you can be sure they’ll then explain exactly what it means - without the medical jargon.
Do you struggle with stairs?
Don’t worry. We are on the ground floor. Not only that, we frequently treat dodgy knees, muscle weakness and stooped posture that makes stairs a challenge.
