Does Chiropractic Care Help With The Flu?

Should You See a Chiropractor When You're Sick?

Every single year, between 5% and 20% of the entire U.S. population is diagnosed with the flu.

Out of those people, 200,000 of them spend time in the hospital. Flu season is one of those things we can be absolutely sure of.

Death, taxes, and the flu. They're all inevitable.

For most of us, though, getting the flu isn't a big deal.

It's annoying, and you feel miserable for a while, but you bounce back and get on with your life.

The only time the flu is an issue is if you're either very young or very old.

Things can get complicated then.

That's why it's recommended for those groups of people to get their flu shots every year.

If you don't fall into one of those categories, staying hydrated, taking some probiotics and extra vitamin C, iron, and vitamin D3 is enough to protect us, and recover, from the flu.

Did you know, though, that your chiropractor can help protect you from the flu?

It's true. Your chiropractor can do much more than heal your back pain.

They can help you prevent and recover from the flu.

6 Reasons You Need To Embrace A Healthy Lifestyle

 

Seven states have an obesity rate of 35% or higher.

Twenty-nine states have an obesity rate of at least 30%.

That's not including people who are overweight.

So it's becoming abundantly clear that although everyone knows it's important to be healthy, a good majority of us aren't doing what it takes to actually be healthy.

We know the soda tastes good. We know you just had a long day at work and all you want to do is sit down and watch TV.

However, the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle are far greater than the joy you get from the taste of that soda, or the relaxation you get from lounging on the couch all night.

A lifetime of health is more valuable than the momentary pleasure of taste.

The Role Of Advanced Technology In Chiropractic Diagnosis and Treatment

Chiropractic care has always been viewed as an alternative, all-natural, or holistic form of medicine.

However, that doesn't make it any less effective because it is still a highly effective form of spinal care that helps millions of Americans improve painful health conditions every year.

Chiropractic care is particularly useful for treating the neck and back, and can also treat headaches, sports injuries, and any other musculoskeletal injury.

Your chiropractor will diagnose and treat your symptoms, and perform manual adjustments or spinal manipulations to treat the injuries or disorders.

Because of chiropractic care being known as an alternative form of medicine, few people think of technology when they think of chiropractic care.

However, in addition to manual adjustments, these treatments can now be done using different types of tools and advanced technologies.

Over the past few years, there have been many changes and advancements in chiropractic technology.

In the article below, we will discuss several of those changes and how they're moving chiropractic care forward.

Antibiotics And Childhood Allergies - Are They Related?

There are about 154 million prescriptions written for antibiotics every single year for antibiotics.

It's estimated that about 30% of those are unnecessary.

The unnecessary prescriptions are typically written for common colds, viral sore throats, bronchitis, and sinus and ear infections; none of which respond to antibiotics.

The 47 million needless prescriptions each year are putting patients at unnecessary risk for other health issues.

Scientists have warned for decades that antibiotic overuse will lead to the development of drug-resistant bacteria, making it even harder to fight infectious disease.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that drug-resistant bacteria cause 23,000 deaths along with two million illnesses annually.

Those statistics alone are enough to make you think twice next time your doctor prescribes you an antibiotic.

But did you know that antibiotic overuse can cause allergies as well?

New research is beginning to shine the light on antibiotics leading to allergies, especially in children.

In the article below, we will take a look at the link between antibiotics and childhood allergies.

How Do Chiropractors Know If Your Spine is Out of Alignment?

Signs of a Misaligned Spine 

The spine is a very complex structure that houses the spinal cord and spinal nerves that carry information throughout our entire bodies. The spinal column is made up of bones called vertebrae. Attached to the spine are muscles that allow strength and movement to the spine. 

When the spine becomes misaligned, also known as a subluxation, it can cause a wide variety of malfunctions within the body. 

Misalignment within the spine can affect our daily lives, causing neck and back pain, as well as pain throughout the rest of our bodies. This pain typically has to do with the misaligned vertebrae adding pressure to the nerves in the spinal column. 

The spine can become misaligned for any number of reasons. Some of which are obvious, like being involved in a serious accident. However, there are other reasons that may not be as clear, and it may not be obvious that there is a misalignment at all. 

Here are some common signs that your Chiropractor will look out for when determining if your spine is misaligned.
