Chiropractic Crime Fighting: Taking a Page from ‘Black Panther’
By Sara Butler
There have been a few exciting movies out lately. Between A Wrinkle in Time and Black Panther, I’ve been positively giddy. There’s nothing I love more than an old-fashioned adventure exploring the fight between good and evil, as evidenced by my deep love of Harry Potter. That must be why I’m such a big fan of chiropractic care too, because there’s no bigger battle between good and evil than in your own body -- a battle that chiropractic can help you win.
Many people are under the mistaken impression that chiropractic is only good in the fight against back pain, but that’s not the case. Adding chiropractic care to your fight gives you so many advantages over the opponents lurking out there to take you down -- illness, disease, and pain. Here’s how chiropractic helps you reign supreme as you battle your own personal Erik Killmonger.
A Little Science
Your immune system is responsible for keeping you healthy. It’s your body’s natural defense against foreign invaders. When bacteria or germs do get in, your immune system kicks in and comes to the rescue, providing an energy dagger -- just like Black Panther used -- to help you defend against these personal space invaders.
Your nervous system plays a big role in this response as your body’s central communication system. If your body is working as it should, it can communicate freely with the nervous system to formulate a plan of attack against the bad guys trying to crush you. Without a nervous system that is strong, the immune system can’t work as it should against these invading germs and bacteria. And it’s your nervous system that chiropractic care is trying to help work as optimally as possible.
At this point, you may be wondering what on earth this has to do with your spine. Your spine is literally the backbone of your central nervous system, since the spinal cord runs directly from your brain down through the spine and branches out to every single part of your body via nerves. The nerves running through your spine carry important messages from your body’s central command. When chiropractors treat joint dysfunction and restriction in your spine, they’re also enhancing its health and function, along with the health and function of your nervous system and immune system. I guess you could say that your immune system is vibranium and your central nervous system is Wakanda, protecting it so it can help you battle the outside forces of evil!
Are You Ready for the Fight?
Just because cold and flu season is winding down doesn’t mean it’s time to let down your guard.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Vermont, Virginia and Wyoming are still experiencing high instances of the flu, and there is “moderate flu-like illness in 15 states.” In other words, there’s still a lot of bad guys out there.
Remember, the enemy is always lurking and waiting! You must be ready to fight back, and you can do that with regular care at The Joint Chiropractic.
