Illness & Chiropractic 

Chiropractic services are considered an essential business, even amidst a global pandemic. Seeing a chiropractic can assist in defending against particular viruses and harmful elements to the body. There are two types of defenses against illness: external and internal. 

External illness, like COVID-19, is found in the environment and can spread person-to-person by coughing, sneezing, and contacting infected surfaces. External defences to these illnesses include practicing social distancing, washing your hands, and wearing protective garments such as gloves and masks. 

Illness that is produced within the body requires an internal defense system. This internal defense system includes a high-functioning immune system. To increase your immune system, it is important to avoid smoking and excess alcohol as well as maintaining a healthy, well-balanced diet and regular exercise.

Chiropractic services positively affect the nervous system located in the brain and spine, which in turn positively affects the immune system. Even if you may not be experiencing any perceivable signs of complications, seeing a chiropractor regularly helps to maximize the function of the immune system to keep you healthy.
