Sickness and Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care won't make you immune to "sickness", but it WILL help you fight illness and recover quicker.
There are times in our office we hear practice members say, "I couldn't come in last week because I had the flu. I thought my adjustments would prevent me from getting sick." And we often reply with, "Wonderful!" This response might seem strange, however let us explain…
Signs Of "Sickness" Mean Your Body Is Functioning Properly
The runny nose, cough, are signs your body is doing what it's programmed to do - fight off the viruses, germs and illness it is exposed to. In other words, when you get the flu, the fever, lethargic feeling and cough, actually serve a purpose. These symptoms are outward signs that your body is doing what it's supposed to in order to fight off the illness inside it! And here is a crazy thought for you to consider, these symptoms are actually not examples of "sickness", but rather examples of "health"!
Neurologically-Based Chiropractic Care and Sickness
While we wish we could cure every illness our practice members are subjected to, that just isn't realistic. Our job is to make sure your nervous system is in optimal health so it can trigger the necessary cues to your immune system to fight off illnesses. Chiropractic care does lead to amazing health benefits, with boosting your immunity at the top of the list!
