Fending Off the Flu with Chiropractic Adjustments

Feb 27, 2017 | Chiropractic

It’s that unfortunate time of the year: seemingly everyone around you is sick with the cold or flu. Instead of just adamantly wishing that you’re not the next victim, why not get proactive and take control of your health?

Cold symptoms include congestion, runny nose, and sneezing. The flu includes those same symptoms in addition to aching, fever, and coughing. Flu season lasts from October to May, with peak months typically being December and February.

It may be difficult to see how chiropractic care can affect your immune system and prevent you from getting sick, but it is important to remember that the human body is a network of cooperative systems, each with their own role in keeping the body going.

In order to keep your body healthy, the musculoskeletal system, central nervous system, and lymphatic system work together, keeping the immune system functioning throughout the body. When the spine is misaligned, communication within the central nervous system becomes difficult. Subluxations occur in the spine, blocking the lymphatic system from draining out viruses and bacteria. The musculoskeletal system can be negatively impacted when you are misaligned as well.  Chiropractic adjustments keep your spine aligned so everything is able to work properly and efficiently.

Even MPR chiropractor Dr. Bill says, “Whenever I feel like something’s starting to come on – a cold, the flu – I get Dr. Murray to adjust me”. Preventative medicine in action!

Getting adjusted when you are sick preps your body to fight off infection and makes sure everything is in working order. Regular adjustments when you’re healthy ensure that your immune system is in great shape should infection come on. For the same reason, chiropractic care can help alleviate allergies. If your body is kept in great working condition with regular adjustments, you should notice a difference in how you feel.

A chiropractic adjustment when you’re feeling congested can be the most relieving feeling in the world – and it’s safer for your body than loading up on medicine!
