Chiropractic Care and Illness: A Link That Works

By Genevieve Cunningham

One of the worst feelings to experience is that feeling that comes right before sickness arrives. You know it’s coming. The tickle in the throat is present, the taste in the mouth changes, headaches pop up from nowhere and persist for hours. No one likes to be sick! While there are many instances in which illness is unavoidable, there are some measures we can take to boost our body’s ability to fight off germs. Take a look at how adding chiropractic care to your life may boost the immune system and keep you healthier than ever before.

How Does the Body Fight Illness?

Before you ever get to the doctor and are prescribed medication to fight illness, your body has already done its best to fight off the infection. Sometimes it is successful and your illness subsides on its own, and other times the doctor has to give a helping hand. But how does this happen? The body has a natural defense system, also known as the immune system, that fights foreign invaders in the body. When germs enter, the body senses their presence and attacks them. In many cases, this is enough to eliminate the foreign invader and keep the body well.

What Does This Have to Do With the Spine?

Even if you understand the basics of the immune system, what does it have to do with the spine? The spine is not a part of the immune system, but it is a part of the central nervous system, also known as the CNS. The CNS is responsible for communication in the body, and it communicates with the immune system daily. When the spine is in poor health, the communication of the CNS suffers, and this can hinder the function of the immune system.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help?

Chiropractors can adjust the health of the spine using spinal manipulation. They remove restrictions found in the vertebrae, which can bring about a wealth of benefits to the entire body. This includes a boost to the immune system, which means less illness and a stronger response to foreign invaders before they take over and cause sickness. Those who get regular care often report less pain, more flexibility, greater concentration, and a stronger immune system as a nice bonus to getting care.
