Why Chiropractic is Essential to Your Health During COVID-19
Most people visit their chiropractors when they’re in pain. Chiropractic isn't just about pain relief, however. Chiropractic is an important part of overall health and wellness care at all times, but especially during a pandemic. Treatment at Century Center Chiropractic in Atlanta can strengthen your immune system, help your vital organs function better, and improve your mood.
Chiropractic and the Immune System
Medical science has not yet developed a vaccine or specific treatment for COVID-19. Most people haven't been exposed to the disease to build antigens against it. To fight the disease, individuals must boost their immune system. Nutrition, exercise, and hand washing are well-known keys to improving immune system function. Chiropractic treatment also provides a boost. Chiropractic adjustments remove subluxations that prevent communication between the nervous system and your immune system. The removal of these subluxations allows your innate immunity, or that part of your immune system that is not stimulated by exposure to antigens, to function better.
Chiropractic and Vital Organs
Regular chiropractic care can help you breathe easier, literally. Studies show that chiropractic adjustments improve lung capacity. Chiropractic treatment can also regulate the heart. Some liver diseases originate because a misaligned spine prevents communication between nerves controlling the liver and the liver itself. Regular spinal adjustments improve this communication.
Chiropractic and Mood
About 4 million adults experience mental illness annually, according to the National Alliance of Mental Illness (NAMI). Anxiety disorders are experienced by the greatest number of people, but depression results in the most mental health-related deaths, NAMI says. Chronic pain often is a key factor in depression, and relief from pain often helps moods. Chiropractic care also has been found to improve mood and lessen symptoms of stress for those who do not suffer from chronic pain.
