Can Chiropractic adjustments help with the common cold?
Recent research suggests that Chiropractic adjustments (Spinal Manipulation) by your Chiropractor in Lake Forest Ca may actually help strengthen your immune system which will, in turn, do a better job defending your body against the common cold. A good DEFENSE system (strong immune system) is key to combating the common cold successfully.
Our immune system is our INTERNAL defense system. It is responsible for fighting a load of bacteria, viruses and other invaders. Daily, we come into contact with millions of these invaders and manage just fine except when our immune system is somehow compromised and we catch a “cold” and experience the symptoms associated with a common cold.
It is well researched and documented that there is a direct relationship between the Immune system and the Central Nervous System (the brain and spinal cord). It is well documented that the Central Nervous System receives special protection from our Immune system and that the integrity of the Central Nervous System can affect the strength and function of the Immune system.
Recent studies published in various medical and chiropractic journals looked at whether Chiropractic adjustments to a certain area of the spine can have a positive effect on the Immune system and what they found WAS THAT IT DID INDEED!! Studies found that Chiropractic adjustments did in fact, help with the symptoms of the common cold such as runny nose, fevers, general aches, cough, and ear infections in both children and adults. Since the adjustments strengthen the Immune system your body is better able to fight off infections.
Of course, when it comes to the common cold, there is no one magical cure. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle by washing your hands frequently, following a good diet and nutrition protocol, getting enough sleep/rest, and receiving regular Chiropractic adjustments by your Chiropractor Lake Forest Ca or your Chiropractor in Laguna Niguel will continue to help improve your odds against catching the common cold.
So get out there, stay active, stay healthy, and make Chiropractic part of you and your family’s regular healthcare routine and witness the positive effects it will have on you and your loved ones.
