And, as if COVID-19 weren’t enough, now we’re heading into cold and flu season—and our bodies are already stressed after months of weathering a pandemic.
So it’s an excellent time to consider specific ways to improve your immunity and add some tools to your toolkit—including regular chiropractic care.
We know: you’ve heard all of these tips before! But we all need to re-evaluate how we’re doing across all of these categories from time to time.
Coming up with a few shifts toward healthier choices can make a big difference.
Studies have shown that people who get regular chiropractic care have improved immunity compared to those who don’t.
Ideally, the nervous system and the immune system work together to help you maintain optimal health.
Your body’s central nervous system is made up of your brain and spinal cord. Picture Grand Central Station: messages are constantly traveling through, from the brain to the body and from the body to the brain.
When all the trains are running on time, the nervous system can get a warning to the brain that there’s an intruder and trigger an immune response.
However, when there’s misalignment in the neck or spine, some train lines may start running late or shutting down altogether, disrupting an integral line of communication.
Your immune response may be delayed or nonexistent.
Chiropractic adjustments improve immunity by alleviating nerve compression and restoring proper alignment—improving body functions across the board.
Dr. David Nygaard is a huge fan of ramping up the immune system to avoid all types of injuries and illnesses.
