Chiropractic care should be one of the first treatments that comes to mind when an adult or child is suffering from a fever. A fever is one of the body’s most powerful defenses against infection.  The body raises the temperature internally to help kill off bacteria, viri or other microorganisms that are invading the body, in turn making the body able to work harder during times of illness. When a fever rises above 102 degrees, a natural antibiotic called interferon is released. When we lower a fever, we are depriving the body of this natural defense system and interfering with the body’s ability to complete its job. This may cause the Illness to linger and cause complications.

Fever Phobia

We must understand that a fever is a natural and necessary part of healing, and not a disease or sickness in itself. 

The Medical Approach

The medical community is divided on the subject of fevers. Some believe that the body will regulate its inner temperature as needed.  A person with a fever should be dressed according to the temperature in the environment, and not according to the fever. Fevers do not automatically require treatment, and usually do not rise to dangerous levels unless the patient is dressed too warmly or is dehydrating.

What Should be Done For Fever?

The presence of fever alone does not mean that there needs to be any treatment, only when there are other symptoms such as listlessness, abnormal behavior, or respiratory difficulty is there an indication that a more serious illness or disease may be present.

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 conditions and diseases that one would normally not be susceptible to.

 The Chiropractic Approach

 Chiropractic is not a treatment for fevers, however it does assist in raising resistance against the sickness and disease. 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. When adjustments are administered to a patient with fever, inmost cases they report feeling better, and the body is given relief from nerve stress enabling it to heal at a quicker pace.


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.
