The Powerful Immune-Boosting Effects of Chiropractic

Because the nervous system controls every system in the body, including the immune system, a properly functioning nervous system translates to an optimally performing immune system.

Given the COVID-19 pandemic as well as flu season that’s upon us, it’s more critical than ever to keep your immune system running at its peak.

How We Evaluate the Spine

Wondering what to expect during a chiropractic check? Our comprehensive exam process, which includes a scan and X-rays (for patients 10 and older), can help us determine how healthy your spine is. Your chiropractor can determine the frequency of visits depending on what they find.

The Importance of Nutrition, Exercise and Sleep

In addition to getting adjusted, there are other essential pieces of the health and wellness puzzle.

Eat nutritious foods. Try to eat more brightly colored vegetables and fruits, including kale and blueberries, and avoid sugar, white flour and other processed foods.

Get proper sleep. It’s no surprise that most adults don’t get the 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep they need for good health. Establishing a good sleep routine including keeping your bedroom cool and dark and powering down digital devices an hour before bed are some tips that could help.

Exercise most days of the week. You don’t have to be a diehard CrossFitter or marathon runner to reap the rewards of exercise. Even walking briskly for 20-30 minutes five days a week can help keep your immune system strong. The key is finding something that you like so you’ll be more likely to stick with it.
