Trying to avoid the sniffles, coughing, and sore throats? It’s that time of the year when many get sick. During flu season, most go and get a flu shot to help prevent them from getting sick. However, do you ever consider chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care can actually help boost your immune system—keeping you healthier year round. Our immune system helps our body protect and fight against infectious organisms, stopping them from entering our bodies.

Sometimes, however, our immune system may not work properly. Some things the can cause a poor immune system include:

  • lack of sleep
  • improper diet
  • immunodeficiency disorders
  • cancer
  • autoimmune disorders
  • allergies
  • stress

Did you know our immune system is directly contented to our spine?

One of the main causes of immune system problems comes from subluxations, or compression of nerve pathways. Keeping your spine aligned allows messages to travel among the body freely.

When the spine is not aligned, it could through your entire system off track. Chiropractors use spinal manipulation to help relieve this compression which in turn may boost your immune system.

Many think of chiropractic treatment with helping neck pain or back pain, but there are so many more benefits than that. Chiropractic adjustments can aide in the overall health in patients. If you want to keep yourself healthy, you have to keep you immune system healthy first.
