There are physiologic changes associated with aging. There are also health conditions that occur more commonly with advancing age. These changes and conditions increase an older adult’s vulnerability to injuries. A recent study investigated risk of injury to Medicare beneficiaries with an office visit for a neuromusculoskeletal problem to chiropractors and primary care physicians. Specifically, investigators looked at the risk of injury within 7 days of those treated by chiropractic spinal manipulation vs. those evaluated by a primary care physician. Results showed that risk of injury to the head, neck or trunk within 7 days was 76% lower among subjects with a chiropractic office visit as compared to those who saw a primary care physician.
