“Fight the flu with a healthy immune system,” says local chiropractor Dr. Mark Harris. The flu season begins in November and is at its height between December and March. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, up to 1 out of every 5 Americans will get the flu this year. Are you prepared for the flu season?
Chiropractic care may be your answer to a clean bill of health this season. Dr. Mark Harris, D.C. might give your immune system a boost with spinal adjustments. Sound far-fetched? A study shown in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research in 1997 showed chiropractic care to be effective in treating the flu. Over 2,800 individuals received regular chiropractic care and the result was an average 15% decrease in the incidence of colds and the flu.
According to the World Chiropractic Alliance, spinal adjustments can help your immune system function better. An adjustment corrects what are called vertebral subluxation's, a word meaning one or bones out of alignment, pinching on nerves. This can lead to interference of the nervous system. When an adjustment is performed, it releases pressure on the nerves and allows more efficient interaction between your body's nervous system and immune system. When your immune system is healthy it is better prepared to prevent or combat the flu.
"Regular chiropractic care is beneficial to most individuals. Preventing the flu is one of the interesting benefits that chiropractic patients often experience. Eating healthy foods, exercising, having good hygiene, and having a healthy body are all important issues in combating the flu," said Dr. Harris.
