The first thought many people have when suffering with back or neck pain is “Better go the Chiropractor,” because, as research shows, Chiropractic adjustments are one of the best ways to relive that pain. However, research has also shown us that those same adjustments may be able to do much more – namely, positively impact your immune system and help it function at a higher level.
Why it Matters:
Relaxation of neck tension after an adjustment is common, which leads many to feel less stressed overall. That matters because when your stress response is lowered, your immune system can better fight off sickness. Here’s why…
- Inflammation, the normal response of a compromised immune system, can increase sympathetic nerve activity.
- Your sympathetic nervous system is responsible for your stress (fight or flight) response.
- When your sympathetic nervous system is activated, it inhibits your immune system, meaning you aren’t able to rest and recover very well.
Less pain. Less stress. Better overall function. So many of our patients tell us that since the start of their care, they get sick less often. If you know someone who seems to get sick quite often, share this information with them. It may be their first step towards a healthier immune system! Better yet, bring them to our upcoming wellness workshop where they can have all of their questions answered and go home with a plan. Visit our Facebook page to learn more or give us a call today.
