Stay Healthy This Holiday Season with Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic medicine is a based on the philosophy that our bodies can heal themselves. It’s our job as chiropractors to unlock this healing ability. Read on to learn how our Boca Raton chiropractor can help you stay healthy this holiday season:
#1: Strengthen the immune system.
Did you know that a spinal misalignment can do more than just cause pain? A misaligned spine can also affect the health of your nervous system. When the spine is out of alignment, it may place pressure on nearby nerves, which can impact the central nervous system’s ability to send and receive messages between the brain and the body. This can also impact how the brain communicates with the immune system. Maintaining proper spinal alignment supports lymph drainage and a strong immune system.
#2: Treat minor aches and pains.
The spine is the body’s foundation, and when it is properly aligned, we are in a state of optimum health. Whether you pulled a back muscle carrying the Christmas tree into the house or are simply feeling seasonal aches and pains, chiropractic adjustments can help. Spinal manipulation is a therapeutic intervention that safely brings alignment back to the spine, relieving minor aches and pains.
#3: Reduce stress and enhance whole body health.
Constant holiday stress can flood our bodies with cortisol, a hormone that is not only linked to stress, but also weight gain and fatigue. Adjustments take less than 20 minutes and are an important part of holiday wellness. Regular adjustments, together with complementary therapies like massage, help to reduce stress in the body so you have more energy and feel healthier.
