Colds and Flu

Chiropractic is not a cure for the common cold, however many people who undergo chiropractic care report a general improvement in health, fewer and less severe colds and an overall better feeling of well being.

The Common Cold

Acute Coryza 45, or the common cold, is attributed to a virus that affects the nose, throat, larynx, and sinuses. Symptoms of the common cold are stuffy nose, watery eyes, runny nose, stuffed sinuses, and congestion.  The absence of high fever is the differentiating factor from other viruses and bacterial infections.

What Causes the Common Cold?

To contract the common cold, or incubate and grow germs, you must first be susceptible to them. Studies show that the common cold is infrequently passed from person to person unless the uninfected person is fertile ground for the passing and growth of the germs.

Vertebral Subluxations

Misaligned vertebrae that interfere with the nervous system and cause nerve stress are called vertebral subluxations. This interference interrupts the information and energy flow to the various parts of the body and lowers our natural resistance to sickness and disease. Chiropractors are trained to locate and correct vertebral subluxation through examination and spinal adjustment. The adjustments relieve the nerve stress and assist in restoration of body function. Proper functioning of the nervous system through chiropractic treatment is one of the best defenses against the common cold.

The Medical Approach

Medicine offers no cure for the common cold. Taking antibiotics for the common cold is a useless endeavor as colds are associated with viruses and are untreatable with antibiotics. Other over the counter antihistamines, decongestants, vitamins and bioflavinoids are just as ineffective, as they are a high profit for the manufacturer with minimal relief from the cold.

The Chiropractic Approach

 Chiropractic is not a treatment for the common cold, however it does assist in raising resistance against the common cold. Spinal nerve stresses damage the nervous system and can lead to disease of all kinds. Chiropractors locate and free the body from spinal nerve stress. Studies have shown that there is a relationship between a healthy nervous system and a healthy body.

Our chiropractic office educates our patients in lifestyle changes that compliment their spinal care. Chiropractic spinal adjustments strengthen areas of the spine and restore impaired nerve flow. Subluxations occur when vertebra misalign irritating delicate spinal nerves. Spinal adjustments remove the nerve pressure and restore function to the body. Chiropractic spinal adjustments by our chiropractors help you live your life to its fullest through a properly functioning nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning properly you express life to your fullest. Chiropractic spinal adjustments enable you to express your God given health potential and to live your life to fullest capabilities. Neck pain, back pain, sciatica, reduced immunity, ear infections, decreased energy, stomach disorders, asthma, allergies, sinus problems, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder problems, sports injuries, spinal disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, numbness, pain, are just some of the signs of improper function in the body and conditions that benefit from Chiropractic spinal adjustments. Don't delay and wait for a spinal problem to develop before you seek out Chiropractic care. Get a Chiropractic spinal adjustment and deal with the cause of your problems rather than masking it with medications which often deal just with the symptoms. Whether you are feel great and want to ensure a healthy and fully functional future or if you are in pain and seek the safe and effective proven results of Chiropractic spinal adjustments, you owe it to yourself to have a spinal check up and to start down the healthy road of lifetime Chiropractic care.
