Beat Winter with the Help of Chiropractic!
By Sara Butler
Winter is here, which means cooler temperatures and the onset of cold and flu season! People around you may be dropping like flies with the latest winter bug or weather-related aches and pains, but there is a secret weapon you can use to help you try to avoid that fate – chiropractic care. Here are just a few of the ways it can help you.
Cold and Flu
Sure, the cold and the flu can strike at any time of the year, but it always seems to run rampant in the winter. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help ward off these illnesses by removing joint restrictions and dysfunctions, allowing your central nervous system to work at its very best. Why is this important? Well, that’s because the central nervous system controls the immune system, so healthy immune systems first need a nervous system that can work unimpeded. So let your chiropractor adjust you and help you fight off disease this winter.
Aches and Pains
Winter is also known for its ability to make those with joint issues such as arthritis even more achy and stiff. When the weather outside turns cold, it can irritate the joints and cause quite a bit of pain and discomfort. Chiropractic care can help alleviate the pain naturally, without the help of over-the-counter medications. It’s a healthier way to deal with the added aches and pains that winter may bring.
Depression is a serious issue and something many people deal with every day. The winter often has a reputation for making depression even worse. Aside from making sure to get enough sunlight in the winter to boost your body’s production of Vitamin D, chiropractic care can also help by ensuring your spine is free of dysfunctions and restrictions so it can send signals to the whole body properly. Chiropractic care, in conjunction with other necessary interventions, can help you to feel better when the winter blues have you down.
Winter is filled with all kinds of health issues, but you don’t have to sweat it when you have a chiropractor on your side. They can help to keep your body functioning properly and make this the most comfortable winter you’ve had yet! Let the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic help to keep you healthy all winter long.
