The Relationship between Chiropractic Care and A Healthy Immune System
Dec 19, 2016

Everyone knows that your ability to remain healthy and fend off disease has a lot to do with your immune system.

Over the years we have been taught and programmed to believe prescription medication or a shot will give us the immune system support we need, but this isn’t always accurate.

In fact, some of the keys to a dynamic immune system are situated in your vertebrae and joints right now, and our Atlanta Chiropractors have the tools to give your immunity the boost it needs.

Misalignment and Your Immune System

It is critical that your nervous system and brain communicate openly with each other for an effective immune response.

If your nervous system is not functioning at full capability, then your immune system may not be working with 100% effectiveness. This means greater vulnerability to viruses, bacteria, and disease.

When you have misaligned vertebrae, known as subluxations, the analogous nerves can be affected, making the communication with your brain jumbled and possibly lowering the immune response.

How Chiropractic Adjustment Boosts Immunity

Chiropractic adjustments can treat misalignments, allowing the nerves in your spine to function with less interference.

When the brain and nervous system can communicate with each other, your immune system is back running at full capacity.

Atlanta Chiropractic doctors may also reduce your neck pain, back pain, jaw pain, headaches, and shoulder pain so you can go about your day-to-day life with less aggravation. So, while Chiropractic treatment can influence your immune system directly, it can also heal your body, so you are in a position to be more dynamic.

Immune Support and Chiropractic Care for Children

Children seem to be at the mercy of just about every type of illness and virus out there, and childhood immunity is always a hot topic of conversation.

Things like tonsillitis, colds, allergies and ear infections can cause a lot of discomforts and become severe, in some cases. Just as with adults, children can receive Chiropractic treatment that will ease stress on nerves and improve their immune response.

With problems like ear infections, Chiropractic adjustment can help to drain the Eustachian tube in the inner ear, which becomes plugged and is responsible for the formation and accumulation of bacteria and viruses.

Our Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta are proficient at performing spinal adjustments on children, and most parents notice a reduction in cold or flu symptoms after one visit. As long as the immune system remains strong, the body is better protected. Chiropractic care can make a real difference for your family.
