Although most people dream of being financially secure in their older years, sadly, this isn’t turning out to be the case. In fact, the National Council on Aging reports that more than 25 million of our nation’s 60+ year olds are considered “economically insecure” as they’re living at or below the federal poverty level, which is just under $30k a year.
Ultimately, this often means having to decide which bills get paid first, which ones don’t get paid at all, and what things they can go without. Sometimes, looking after their health doesn’t make the cut. Yet, one study has found that chiropractic can be a cost effective treatment option for older adults struggling with the all-too common issue of chronic neck pain.
