older doesn't mean you have to "feel" old - or
act it. You probably know people in their 60's, 70's and

recent study found that older
people who utilize chiropractic care report better overall
health, fewer symptomatic chronic conditions, shorter stays
in hospitals and nursing homes, and more mobility than seniors
who were not using chiropractic care. This three year study,
headed by Ian Coulter, Ph.D., of the prestigious Rand Corporation
Research Institute, also showed that older people who use
chiropractic on a regular, periodic basis were less likely
to use prescription drugs and more likely to exercise regularly
and participate in community activities. This investigation
suggests the potential for chiropractic care to address
the preventive and rehabilitative needs of the older patient,

side-effects of combining various drugs, the simple, natural
effectiveness of chiropractic care is very reassuring.

be tailored to each unique health situation and lifestyle.
