Now is the best time to make sure you have all you need to fight infections.
There are many ways you can boost your immune system to help you feel stronger and healthier. Our nervous and immune systems aid us to stay healthy and allow our bodies to function at full potential.
Research has shown that our immunity is coordinated by the central nervous system, neural circuits that operate reflexively in the brain and spine. Chiropractors adjust spinal defects, also known as subluxations.
According to the National Institutes of Health Scientific Reports, vertebral subluxation has been defined as “a self- perpetuating, central segmental motor control problem that involves a joint, such as a vertebral motion segment, that is not moving appropriately, resulting in ongoing maladaptive neural plastic changes that interfere with the central nervous system’s ability to self-regulate, self-organize, adapt, repair and heal.”
People of all ages are vulnerable to vertebral subluxations, which can be caused by stressors that our bodies are not adapting to. These stressors can be a combination of physical, chemical and emotional. Stressors hinder the nervous system’s ability to self regulate.
Chiropractic care helps reduce these stressors by removing spinal joint problems, allowing your nervous system to regulate the whole body. Improved neural function means improved immune function.
