How St. Petersburg Chiropractic Care May Help
Boost Your Immunity

Chiropractor discusses boosting your immunity

Everyone knows that your ability to ward off disease and remain healthy has a lot to do with your immune system. Through the years we’ve been taught and programmed to believe a shot or prescription medication will give us the immune system support we need, but this isn’t always true. In fact, some of the keys to a healthy immune system are situated in your joints and vertebrae right now, and St. Petersburg chiropractors have the tools to give your immunity a boost.

Misalignment and Your Immune System

It is crucial that your brain and nervous system communicate clearly with each other for an effective immune response. If your nervous system is not functioning at full capacity then your immune system may not be working with 100% effectiveness. This means greater susceptibility to viruses, bacteria, and disease. When you have misaligned vertebrae, known as subluxations, the corresponding nerves can be affected making the communication with your brain muddled and possibly decreasing the immune response.

How Chiropractic Adjustment Boosts Immunity

Chiropractic adjustments can remove misalignments, allowing the nerves in your spine to operate with less interference. When the brain and nervous system are able to communicate effectively your immune system is back running at full capacity. St. Petersburg chiropractic doctors may also reduce your back pain, neck pain, jaw pain, headaches, and shoulder pain so you can function in your day-to-day life more efficiently. While chiropractic treatment can influence your immune system directly, it can also heal your body so you are in a position to be more active.

Immune Support and Children

Kids seem to be at the mercy of just about every type of virus and illness out there and childhood immunity is always a hot topic of conversation. Things like ear infections, colds, allergies, and tonsillitis can cause a lot of discomfort and become serious in some cases. Just as with adults, children can receive chiropractic treatment that will ease tension on nerves and improve their immune response.

With problems like ear infections, chiropractic adjustment can help to drain the Eustachian tube in the inner ear which becomes plugged and is responsible for the formation of bacteria and viruses. Our chiropractors at Thrive! Chiropractic & Wellness are well versed at performing spinal adjustments on children and most parents notice a reduction in cold or flu symptoms after a visit. As long as the immune system remains strong the body is more protected. Chiropractic care can make a real difference for your family.

"Dr. Kelley and her husband Michael run a welcoming, energizing practice that you feel as soon as you walk through the door. Dr. Kelley's approach is ideal, it's almost like getting a mini massage, but she also uses appropriate force during the adjustments."
