‘Tis the season of colds and flus...and with the added stress of trying to make the holidays special during a pandemic, your immune system has its work cut out for it. In tough conditions like these, it’s more important than ever to take care of your health and strengthen your body’s ability to fight off disease.

Strengthening your immune system is one of the best ways to keep yourself safe and healthy this winter. What’s the best way to boost your immunity? The most effective method is one that takes your overall well-being into consideration, so you’ll likely need a multiple-pronged approach that addresses your physical, mental, and emotional health. You probably already know that a healthy diet, regular exercise, meditation, and supplements can all help get your immune system in tip-top condition— especially when used in combination. One of the most powerful tools to boost immunity may be one you hadn’t thought of: Chiropractic.

How Can Chiropractic Boost Immunity?

If you’re like most people, you may think that chiropractic is simply a treatment to ease back pain. How could it possibly prevent sniffles and head colds? In fact, chiropractic is one of the few treatments that focuses on whole body wellness. This is because the spinal column is part of your body’s central nervous system—which is the main command center. Chiropractic treatment can have a positive effect in many areas of the body, including your immune system.

How does it work? The nervous system regulates your immune response by releasing neurotransmitters, neuropeptides, and neurohormones. When the nervous system is compromised by stress, pain, or spinal misalignment, your immune system suffers as well. Chiropractic improves the movement of the bones that encase the spinal cord, thereby allowing your nervous system to work properly as it regulates your immune system and other bodily functions.

Does It Really Work?

Yes! Although the relationship between your spine and your immune system may sound complicated, it is a proven one. Multiple studies have shown a clear correlation between chiropractic treatment and immune health. One groundbreaking study demonstrated that patients who received regular chiropractic care had up to 200% greater immune competence than the general population.

When and How Often Should I Get Chiropractic Treatment?

While chiropractic isn’t a cold and flu cure, it is a powerful preventative that can strengthen your body’s ability to fight off illness and infection. It can also help your body to heal and recover from illnesses you’ve already contracted. While both regular and one-time treatments can be beneficial, it’s important to note that regular chiropractic treatments tend to yield the greatest benefits to immune health.
