Lately, the conversation that all the experts in public health have been promoting is to use every means available to support one’s immune system during the pandemic. Particular attention is being paid to stress; stress is creating unprecedented levels of anxiety, and fear in some. Scientific evidence concludes that long-term exposure to stress negatively affects the immune system. Chiropractic care can help boost your immune system, offering physical and even psychological relief.
While many may associate chiropractic treatment with those that are suffering from neck or back pain, our treatment actually has a much more holistic and comprehensive effect on the body. Chiropractic care aids in the overall health of patients.
Nervous System and Immune System
Misalignments in the spine can cause the nervous system to be strained and stressed. Vertebral subluxations are associated with exaggerated sympathetic activity. Chiropractic adjustments help enable your nervous system to perform optimally. Because the nervous system controls all functions of the body—including the immune system—chiropractic care can have a positive effect on immune function.
Chiropractic Care and the Immune System
Your immune system is directly connected to your spine and when it is not aligned, it may throw your entire system off track. You may experience pain or tingling in your back, neck, or extremities, or the sensation maybe even more subtle. At Divine Spine Yorba Linda, we specialize in headaches, neck pain, lower back and upper back pain, numbness, tingling or shooting pain in the hands or feet, posture correction, and spinal degeneration. Our chiropractic treatment is performed through our Electronic Vertebral Alignment system and occasionally through our hands. This means, our adjustment is a non-invasive procedure consisting of a precise directed movement to help relieve pain and discomfort and restore range of motion in the spine. Through these spinal corrections, we help you build the foundation for a healthier immune system.
Our lifestyle plays a huge role in whether or not we stay healthy on a consistent basis. A healthy lifestyle is a holistic process that cannot happen only when in a doctor’s office. At Divine Spine Yorba Linda, we can offer you with exercise and stretch routines to complete at home. There are many posture and spinal problems that result from a sedentary lifestyle. Various techniques and therapeutic actions can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle and an immune system between visits.
Chiropractic Care as Preventative Medicine
Chiropractic care acts as preventative medicine, improving your chances of fighting off cold and flu. Now, more than ever, the strength of our immune system is so important. Keeping the immune system healthy is important to prevent many diseases and fight off any pre-existing conditions. The prevention of such diseases can minimize costs of health care, improve quality of life, and decrease both morbidity and mortality. Therefore, patients of all ages and socioeconomic status find that they can benefit from the type of care offered at Divine Spine Yorba Linda. Additionally, it is appropriate for those individuals in acute pain, dealing with chronic health issues, or just looking to take a more inclusive and comprehensive approach to their overall health.
