Written By Loving Health Chiropractic on November 4, 2019

Happy healthy familyNobody likes getting sick. 

Yet, when it comes to disease prevention, most people are relaxed. Sure, your wash your hands and try not to sit next people who are coughing, but many people don’t realize that there is so much more that can be done to prevent disease. 

One way is to improve the function of the immune system, and chiropractic care can help you do that. 

3 Ways Chiropractic Care Improves Immune System Support

Out of all the ways to prevent disease, improving your immune system might be the best. This is because the body doesn’t operate as a collection of separate parts. When we improve our immune system, we simultaneously improve our overall health.   

1. Release Stress 

Stress suppresses the immune system on a short and long-term basis. Regular chiropractic adjustments help to release muscle tension caused by stress, thus improving the flow of energy and improving overall immune function.

2. Stimulate the Immune System

Evidence suggests that spinal adjustments help to stimulate the flow of energy through the body, which stimulates immune function. Specifically, spinal manipulations reduce inflammatory molecules that are always circulating in our body. Therefore, chiropractic adjustments of the spine can help improve immune function and prevent disease. 

3.  Improve Mobility

Studies show that improved mobility of the spine correlates with greater immune function. Further, greater range of mobility maintained into old age correlates with greater activity. Chiropractic care helps to maintain pain-free range of motion, which facilitates exercise. Exercise is an outstanding immune system booster.

Support Your Immune System With Chiropractic Care

There are plenty of ways to prevent disease, yet most people don’t think of it until it’s too late. Chiropractors can help you be proactive in your approach to disease prevention, to help you improve your family’s quality of life.
