Chiropractic Care for Seniors with Neck Pain.

It is estimated that 1 in 5 people aged 70 and older suffer from neck pain. A recent survey of 288 Australian chiropractors revealed that seniors account for about a third of their patients, with neck pain affecting roughly half, often with co-morbid headaches. Among responders, the most common treatment approach for older adults with cervical pain included a combination of manual therapies (including manipulation and mobilization), neck-specific exercises, and self-management techniques.
