Osteopathy for seniors

Why should a senior citizen consult an osteopath?

With the increase in life expectancy, older people are often still very active but sometimes feel held back by their bodies. As we age, we feel less and less flexible. Ligaments lose their elasticity, cartilage becomes damaged, osteoarthritis starts to appear and as a result the joints have less joint range of motion. This aging is likely to be even more important if the person has had a strenuous job (physically or morally).

Falls, past traumas, surgeries are all factors that can unbalance a body and cause painful after-effects in the short, medium or long term. The latter can be of an osteoarticular nature (lower back pain, sciatica, etc.) or even digestive (constipation, diarrhea, etc.). With age, they are less and less well supported by the body, which can no longer adapt to the constraints. Everyday life can even become difficult in some cases (climbing stairs, combing one's hair...).
