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.

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.

Chiropractic care has always been viewed as an alternative, all-natural, or holistic form of medicine used to improve your health.

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.

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

Signs of a Misaligned Spine 

Your back 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 your back. 

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 you're misaligned.
