The Chiropractic and Immune System Link
The nervous system is highly connected to the immune system and if one is not working properly, the other is affected. Spinal misalignments cause the body a good deal of stress and that can lead to a poor immune system. Chiropractors adjust the body in order to relieve pain and help with injuries, but more and more studies are showing that chiropractic adjustments boost the nervous and immune systems.
There is a great deal of evidence within the published chiropractic and medical research that the immune system is hardwired into many organs. If those organs are not functioning properly, the immune system does not work as well either. The same can be said for the misalignment of the spine since it causes compression and irritation on many different organs, the central nervous system, and other areas of the body. When the immune function is compromised, the body is automatically open to a variety of diseases that it might otherwise have been able to fight off.
Our chiropractors in Bozeman, MT adjust spines for a variety of reasons, but one of those reasons is to relieve the stress on the nervous system and boost the immune system. There are a number of things the ProChiropractic Physicians recommend you do in order to boost your own immunity.
The following are a few examples of such items:
-Eat a healthy diet full of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low fat intake
-Exercise on a regular basis
-Do not smoke
-Maintain a low blood pressure
-Control your weight
-Get enough sleep
-Drink only moderate levels of alcohol, if any at all
-Avoid infections by washing hands and cooking meat thoroughly
-Make regular medical appointments for routine check-ups
As you age, your immunity levels within your body may go down and you might wonder what else you can do to avoid getting sick all of the time. One thing you could add to the above items would be to visit a chiropractor. As you get older, you might notice aches and pains that were not there in the past and these could be due to a spinal misalignment.
It never hurts to visit the Pro Chiropractors in Bozeman, MT. In fact, the adjustments are pain-free.
