Combat Cold and Flu Season

Published November 30th, 2021 by Dr. Markson

It is now the holiday season! Mostly everyone is ramping up for parties and family celebrations that will come over the next couple of months. However, with the cooler months comes cold and flu season. During cold and flu season, holiday cheer isn't the only thing spreading. Learn how chiropractic care can help you avoid the common cold.

Why Do We Get Sick in the Fall?

Weather changes can be detrimental to our health. The cool winds bring in new allergens, and if we don't bundle up, it's easy to catch a chill that turns into an illness. There is also a lot of socialization in the fall with children returning to school and families getting involved in more activities. As a result, more germs are exposed and spread very quickly. With the weather and the number of germs in the air, it's not surprising to see a rise in sickness this time of year.

Is There a Way to Avoid the Common Cold?

The fact is, we cannot guarantee our wellness at any time of year. At some point, we will come into contact with illness. Nevertheless, we can take some steps to build the immune system and keep germs away. Start by washing your hands regularly, covering your nose and mouth, and sanitizing surfaces that are frequently touched. One of the best ways to reduce your chances of getting sick is to remove germs from your body as quickly as possible.

Can Chiropractic Care Help?

To many people's surprise, chiropractic care reduces the odds of illness for patients who receive regular care. Due to chiropractors' improvements in spinal health, many other body systems benefit as well. Among these is the immune system, the body's first defense against infection. Having a strong immune system helps you fight off germs in time to avoid a severe illness. The key is consistency in adjustments. If you maintain your spinal health with regular chiropractic care, you have a better chance of avoiding the common cold and enjoying a healthy holiday season.
