Chiropractic care has been proven to have positive effects on immune system functioning.

For that reason, the World Chiropractic Alliance recommends that people use chiropractic care in fending off the flu this season.

Chiropractic care corrects spinal disruptions called subluxations, which can interrupt nervous system functioning. Because the nervous system has a direct effect on the immune system, which helps protect us from infectious diseases like the flu, in turn chiropractic adjustments can be deemed a means of improving your immune system’s abilities.

Using chiropractic to help battle the flu is not a new practice. In the 1917-1918 influenza epidemic, one patient out of every 15 treated by medical doctors in Davenport, Iowa, died—amounting to 6,116 people. At the Palmer School of Chiropractic during the same epidemic, chiropractors adjusted 1,635 people with the flu and had only one death.

Chiropractors also stress the importance of having a healthy lifestyle to have an immune system that can stand up against the flu. Getting adequate rest, drinking plenty of water, having a balanced diet and exercising all positively influence the immune system and immune response.
