Not just for pain, Chiropractic can also have a strong influence on your general health.
Using before and after PET scans to compare changes in brain activity and testing salvia samples to track hormone changes after they received a chiropractic neck adjustment, a group of patients showed brain activity in the parts of the brain responsible for processing pain and stress reactions to be much lower and the saliva samples also had significantly reduced cortisol levels following an adjustment, all indicating decreased stress levels.
As most diseases are stress-related and driven, it follows that lowering one’s reaction to stress and the resulting cortisol levels… would lead to an improved ability to fight disease.
Another way of looking at it is stress and cortisol production, being the result of your body attempting to adapt to the effects of physical, mental, emotional, and other stresses in your environment - getting adjusted will improve your ability to adapt to you environment and resist illness.
Now that we’re in the middle of Cold & Flu season, wouldn’t it make sense to get
adjusted and improve your immunity to illness as much as you could?
