While the flu shot is being heavily debated, SF Custom Chiropractic offers chiropractic care as a safe and healthy alternative that will help keep the nervous system and therefore the immune system in proper function this flu season.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 17, 2011
The human body’s nervous system controls all of the functions of the body directly and indirectly from the cellular level up to the organs and glands, including the immune system. In an immune system response, the brain and nervous system communicate with the immune system and work together to eliminate any foreign invaders, set up a strong defense and find homeostasis in the body. If any part of that system is not in full function, any “invaders” have a greater chance of succeeding and causing illness.
Chiropractic adjustments correct abnormalities or misalignments in the spine called subluxations. Left untreated, subluxations can cause interference with the entire nervous system by pinching or putting pressure directly on the nerves. This pinching and pressure can impede the nervous system’s signals and communication between the brain and the rest of the body. When communication is hindered between the brain and immune system, the system is less likely to function properly. All of this can happen before any symptoms of illness occur.
Additionally, chiropractors such as Dr. Adam Jacobs, focus on increasing their patient’s health from multiple perspectives. Dr. Jacobs encourages his San Francisco patients to eat well, drink lots of water, exercise, have proper ergonomics and take care of their bodies in addition to regular chiropractic adjustments. SF Custom Chiropractic also offers deep tissue massage that can be helpful in moving toxins out of the body and maintaining health of the muscles and nerves.
While the flu shot is being heavily debated, chiropractic is a safe and healthy alternative that will help keep the nervous system and therefore the immune system in proper function this flu season. At SF Custom Chiropractic Dr. Adam Jacobs incorporates chiropractic adjustments and Active Release Technique in each treatment to ensure both the vertebrae, joints and surrounding soft tissue are all in balance and at their peak function.
