What are the benefits of chiropractic care to boost your immune defenses?

The benefits of chiropractic care are numerous. Some of them may include reducing pain in your joints, back, or headaches. Others include increased overall mobility and provide better balance, coordination, and energy.

It is not normal or healthy for a person to have discomfort or pain, whether it is habitual or temporary. Even getting sick several times in a few months can be a warning sign to watch your back or check the capacity of your immune system. A person can be ill without presenting clear symptoms, for example, 35% of heart attacks occur suddenly and without warning signs. This shows us the importance of regular preventive health checks.

How can Chiropractic improve your immune system?

With years of research, we have come to realize that viruses do not threaten us all equally and that a healthy immune system can more easily repel most invaders. The immune system protects us from illnesses like the flu as well as any other virus or bacteria and strives to get us back on our feet quickly when we get sick.

During an immune response the brain and the immune system coordinate as if they were the general of an army ordering his troops, so if the nervous system (brain) does not work well, the immune system will not work well either.

Subluxations have multiple causes due to bad postural habits (in daily life, at work, during sleep, etc.). Stress or aging are also factors of possible subluxations. Stress or aging are also factors of possible subluxations.

The function of the doctor of chiropractic is to detect and correct vertebral blockages (called vertebral subluxation complex) that originate as a result of the crushing that occurs in the nerve roots to reduce the space between two vertebrae. This will cause interference in the transmission of the nerve message, weakening the immune system. Since the nervous system controls all functions of the body, including the immune system, it is important to restore the vertebrae to their natural position so that the nervous system can regain its proper function and help our brain control what is going on in the rest of the body. Therefore, good chiropractic care can have a positive effect on the immune system and boost our immune defenses and make it react more quickly and effectively.
