How Our Chiropractors in West Hartford can Treat and Prevent the Flu and Cold

Problems that occur in the body happen as a result of problems within the central nervous system. The central nervous system delivers signals from the brain all over the body. Sometimes this system becomes inhibited by the presence of subluxations or other imbalances and injuries. Subluxations can pinch the spinal cord and stop good communication between the brain and the rest of the body.

Signals from the brain that become scrambled or crossed can cause problems like reduced immune function, thus predispose our body to be easy affected by the normal and seasonal various viruses and bacteria that are all around us normally. Chiropractors can improve the functioning of the body, including the enhanced function of the immune system to kick in fast, fight all those pathogens and help patients ward off a virus by improving communication between the brain and the rest of the body through the nervous system.

Spinal adjustments are multiple techniques chiropractors use to restore balance to the spine and nervous system thus improve the function of the body and its ability to keep us healthy and disease free. The gentle techniques are done by realigning the vertebrae manually, or by using various adjusting instruments. When the spine is in alignment, communication between the brain and the rest of the body via the nervous system is optimized. As your chiropractors in West Hartford, we use this technique to help our patients fight off viruses and stay healthy.
