Seniors & Elders : Aging Well With Osteopathy
Over the years our body is subject to transformations. Gradually, they lead to decreases in all of its functions and promote the appearance of disabilities.
Seniors & Elders can then see themselves deprived of their bearings, their potential to communicate correctly with those around them and are exposed to falls. They finds themselves restricted in the actions of their daily life.
Such restrictions can lead to loss of autonomy and isolation, and have both a significant psychological and social impact.
Being followed as early and as regularly as possible by an osteopath makes it possible to regain and strengthen your functions.
Promoting “better aging” by maintaining a good overall, physical and mental condition of the individual through lifelong preventive action, guarantees their health capital. For example, osteopathic treatments improve balance, reduce short and long term pain, and thus help improve quality of life.
