With the current coronavirus pandemic, we encourage everyone to stay at home, wash their hands, and practice social distancing. The best way to fight the Covid-19 is to maintain a generally healthy lifestyle. This way, the body can strengthen the immune system and protect itself from all types of illnesses, including the coronavirus.
Chiropractic care has long been proven to be an effective way of strengthening the immune system, which in turn will help the body repel most pathogenic viruses and microbes. But not only does a healthy immune system prevent viruses from getting into the body in the first place, but it also helps fight them when we do get sick. The body’s immune system strives to get us well again when we fall ill.
When the nervous and immune systems are healthy, they enable the body to function at its full potential. Research has proven that molecular and neurophysiological studies during the past decade have revealed that immunity is coordinated by neural circuits that operate reflexively. This means that a chiropractic adjustment’s impact on the nervous system can benefit the immune system as well.
Doctors of Chiropractic can adjust and treat spinal abnormalities known as subluxation. Subluxations are joints that are not moving appropriately. Subluxations are formed when a spinal bone, called vertebra, or group of spinal bones move inappropriately and cause interference with the brain and nervous system affecting the body’s ability to function, heal and be healthy.
Subluxations result in maladaptive changes that interfere with the central nervous system’s ability to self-regulate and self-organize. This means subluxations prevent the body from adapting, repairing, and healing itself.
Subluxations are also seen as a sign that someone is stressed beyond their general adaptive capacity, which hinders their ability to function.
People of all ages are susceptible to vertebral subluxations. Different stressors in the body can cause these problems, be it physical, chemical, or emotional stress. This then hinders the nervous system, which prevents its proper function.
Your chiropractor can help you reduce these stressors by removing spinal joint dysfunctions. This allows the nervous system to operate optimally. The body will be able to function properly, and its ability to repair itself will be restored. Every system in the body helps keep you healthy.
Aside from boosting your immune system, it can also restore your range of motion after an accident, reduce pain, and relax your body. Chiropractic care has a wide range of benefits.
It doesn’t have to be for the coronavirus. Having a healthy body and a strong immune system can protect you from all kinds of diseases. Contact your local chiropractor to learn more about how chiropractic adjustments can help you stay safe from disease.
