Manual Therapy for the elderly

Spinal and joints alignment is very important for elderly because of the skeletal muscular deterioration that occur with increasing age. As we age, spinal discs, joints, ligaments, muscles and other spinal tissues become weaker, less hydrated, more fibrotic, and less able to withstand normal stresses.
