Seeing your chiropractor is not just about neck and back pain relief. Your adjustments regularly improve spinal health, proper joint function, and nervous system health. All this promotes overall health and healthy body systems, including the immune system. Here’s how chiropractic care can help your immune system.
The Immune System and Your Spine
The nervous system communicates with your body through your spinal cord. If your spinal alignment is off, then there is a direct interference in that communication system. This can cause pain and leave you susceptible to injury and illness. When your neural pathways are compressed from a misaligned spine, your body is weakened from fighting off illness naturally. Chiropractic care is designed to realign the spine. As a result, regular adjustments could boost your immune system substantially.
A Stressed-Out Spine
Stress can negatively impact your immune system. When your body is stressed, it can physically impact your spine. Many people carry stress physically in their shoulders, neck and, back. Heightened stress levels only exacerbate pain, which puts even more pressure on the spine. Regular chiropractic care can help alleviate physical stress on the spine, which in turn boosts the immune system.
Chiropractic as Preventive Care
Seeing your chiropractor regularly can help you be more in tune with your body. When you feel healthy physically, it is easier to spot when something is wrong. In this way, chiropractic care is just as much preventative care as it is pain relief. You can boost your immune system, as well as your body’s ability to heal, by making your spinal health a priority.
