Elder Chiropractic Care

Semlow Family Chiropractic | Elder Chiropractic Care


Older adults can experience the benefits of chiropractic care by improving posture, relieve back and neck pain, improve overall health and increase their quality of life. Spinal misalignment can lead to many health issues including poor digestion, lack of balance, and a weakened immune system.  For the older generation, this can also cause poor posture, stiff muscles or limited range of motion which can contribute to more falls. Regular adjustments can help with misalignment to improve posture so that older adults can feel more confident standing and walking.

Our adjustments use a variety of techniques specific to each patient’s needs, which can be tailored to be more gentle without twisting or cracking. Many patients also experience increased energy levels, improved sleep and higher quality of life.

Don’t give up the activities you love, come experience the benefits of chiropractic care and get back to the active lifestyle you enjoy!

I am 79 years old.  Four generations of my family are benefiting now from Dr. Rick’s help.  It was my parents that first began treatments at the Semlow Clinic some 30 years ago from Dr. Ron and Dr. B ob.  So 5 generations of my family have found relief here from various problems. I began treatment from Dr. Rick about 2 1/2 years ago.  My right leg had been numb every morning for about 2 years previous to my first visit.  The numbness would go away after about 2 hours every morning.  After the first treatment from Dr. Rick I no longer had that symptom at all. Another problem I have is weakness in the legs due to neuropathy.  There is no medical treatment for it except an operation if it progressively worsens.  The adjustments from Dr. Rick have helped a great deal to keep the pressure of the vertebrae off the discs and keep the vertebrae aligned to relieve the affect on the nerves to my legs and feet.  I know that it is helping me to keep walking, relieves the discomfort and avoid the operation. – Mary Lynn C.

Approximately four or five years ago I had my first visit adjustment with Dr. Rick.  I have been coming to the Semlow Clinic since they were located in Rochester.  Dr. Rick’s method was totally different from any other I had ever had in my 60 some years.  It took me a few days to recover, but he had solved my problem.  I know within two adjustments I’ll be back to normal.. At my age, I should be smart enough to come in at least once a month to prevent problems. – Jean N.
