You heard it right – Your back ache or neck pain might not be the only reason to see a chiropractor! In today’s world, your immune system is something to be protected at all costs. With everything in the world attacking your immune system – why not take every measure to protect it? Believe it or not, there is research showing that chiropractic adjustments can boost your immune system!
You take vitamin C, zinc, multivitamins – you do yoga, you walk, you drink green tea and more! Why not approach your wellness from a chiropractic angle as well? Are you really considering all of your options?
Studies have shown that Chiropractic adjustments can increase the body’s production of white blood cells. It can also decrease production of inflammatory chemicals such as Cytokines. This is great news, when it comes to holistic preventative care! Routine adjustments also help to decrease the body’s level of the stress hormone Cortisol – which when in high levels can decrease overall immune function. Chiropractic adjustments treat dysfunctional joints of the spine that can cause nerve, muscle and chemical problems in our bodies. These dysfunctional joints (subluxations) can affect the nervous system in many ways due to the intimate relationship between the spine and the nerve roots.
Subluxations can be a real drag, but we’ve got you!
Subluxations in the spine can cause decreased immune function and predispose our bodies to infection. This is because our immune system is ultimately controlled by the nervous system. By removing these subluxations with routine adjustments, we can allow the immune system to restore healthy functionality, giving YOU the boost your immune system needs!
In short, not only do adjustments have the potential of giving a boost your immune system, but they also can restore proper communication through the nervous system. This is so important for total body wellness. We encourage you to stay on top of your immune system during these times and put your health and wellness first.
