While chiropractic adjustments don’t specifically treat your immune system, improving the immune system’s functioning is one of many ‘fringe benefits‘ of chiropractic care.
How does chiropractic care help your immune system?
- Chiropractic adjustments help correct ‘subluxations’ (or joint dysfunctions) in your spine.
- Your spine houses your nerves.
- Your nerves effect every area of your body, including your immune system.
When the joints in the spine are better aligned, and stress is relieved from the nervous system, the communication within the nervous system is improved; thus helping the immune system function properly.
Children, in particular, seem to benefit the most from this ‘fringe benefit’ of chiropractic care. We’ve seen great results with chiropractic adjustments helping children with ear infections, tonsillitis, allergies and asthma – just to name a few.
If you’re not feeling your best, (or even if you are!) call to arrange your chiropractic appointment, and maybe you’ll experience one of the many ‘fringe benefits’! 519-258-8544
