Spring is the season for colds, flus and over-all crud. With kids in school and it being so cold and damp outside, keeping the whole family healthy can be a challenge. Here at Altair Chiropractic we want to help you keep your whole family in tip-top shape, so illness doesn’t ruin your fun!
Do you know that regular spinal adjustments can increase your immune health by 200% according to a study done by Pero R. “Medical Researcher Excited by CBSRF Project Results.” The Chiropractic Journal, August 1989
Dr. Pero measured the immune systems of people under chiropractic care as compared to those in the general population and those with cancer and other serious diseases. In the initial three-year study of 107 individuals who had been under chiropractic care for five years or more, the chiropractic patients were found to have a 200% greater immune competence than people who had not received chiropractic care, and 400% greater immune competence than people with cancer
and other serious diseases.
According to this study, regular visits to your Chiropractor could save you from getting sick.
How can getting adjusted help you and your family stay well?
Chiropractic is famous for back and neck care however there are many other advantages that are not so common including improving the immune function. Your immune system is your body’s first line of defense to fight viral and bacterial infections. The immune system relies on nutrition, exercise, posture, being well rested, and having a healthy spine. Regular adjustments vastly improve digestion, your ability to exercise and your posture. Your nervous system runs through the spine and it works with the immune system helping the body to adapt and heal appropriately when required. Spinal misalignments can cause neural miscommunication which can weaken your immune response. Subluxation is the chiropractic term for misalignments of the spine that cause compression of nerve pathways affecting your organs. When your spine is moving properly then your whole body can function with more ease.
