What is geriatric chiropractic care?

It’s chiropractic care that’s more specialized and senior-focused. Dr. Kritzberg is aware of the increased health risks associated with aging, and how to lower your risks through preventive care methods and chiropractic care.

Chiropractic techniques are used in geriatric care to build patient’s strength and endurance and enhances healing. Some of the treatments include:

  • Cranial-sacral therapy
  • Activator method
  • Physical therapy

The chiropractic techniques are specifically catered to seniors and are usually gentler and promote relaxation, mindfulness, stretching, and movement.

Since seniors are more prone to bone and muscle weakening and deterioration, Dr. Kritzberg focuses on building strength, endurance, and enhancing their quality of life and mobility.

With stronger bones and muscles and better balance and coordination, seniors can prevent falls, a major cause of concern that could lead to serious health complications.
