Just because you’re sick doesn’t mean you have to cancel your chiropractic appointment. Rather, it is all the more reason to come in.
Your immune system is responsible for your overall health and it is activated by your nervous system. So, it is important that your central nervous system functions at full capacity if you want to as well.
Studies show that colds, sinus infections, sore throats, and stomach viruses have healed quicker for those who regularly receive chiropractic care. The nervous system is the channel of communication throughout your body. When something is wrong with your nervous system, it alerts the immune system to begin working to heal the problem. If the nervous system falls behind or is not in good condition however, it will not have the power to properly communicate with your immune system that there is a problem.
Chiropractic care does not stimulate the immune system to begin working when you are sick. Rather, chiropractic practice is used simply to normalize your spinal function. With your spinal normalized, your body can then function and perform the natural healing process.
When most people think ‘chiropractic care’, they think about pain relief. Your nervous system is home to a lot more than just pain receptors. It is home to the control panel to pretty much your entire body. Breathing, digestion, internal organ function, muscle control, and your immune system are all commanded to function by your nervous system. Chiropractic care, with a special focus in caring for the nervous system, is a proactive way of creating a healthier lifestyle.
