Benefits of Chiropractic Care During The Winter.
Winter is a season when many people experience health related issues that make everyday tasks more difficult. It could be caused from the common cold, flu, or a fall on the ice that causes an individual’s health to be compromised at some point during the winter months.
Thankfully, Chiropractic care can help keep you healthy during the winter. Regular visits to our office can help reduce if not prevent health complications. If you are thinking about skipping your chiropractic appointments due to the weather, these reasons should help to convince you otherwise.
Combat Cold and Flu
We’ve all heard of the expression “The key to a good defense is a good offense”. When it comes to conquering the common cold, the key to a good defense is a good defense or, more specific, a good DEFENSIVE SYSTEM! The internal defensive system of the human body is our own immune system. When people think of winter health problems, cold and flu are the first two things that come to their minds. The months of December, January and February can trigger a rise in bacteria and viruses in human populations. By undergoing chiropractic care, it can help your body fight those viruses by helping all the systems in your body work better together. It can also improve the communication between the brain and the rest of the body and keep proper alignment to the vertebrae.
A frequent problem during the winter/holiday months is SAD (Seasonal affective disorder) Symptoms include fatigue, depression, hopelessness, and social withdrawal. Chiropractic care can help individuals with SAD by stimulating their central nervous system and regulating their hormone production. Chiropractic adjustments may also increase the level of endorphins in the bloodstream, key to combating this condition.
