Missing a Chiropractic Appointment Because You're Sick

Published January 4th, 2016 by Dr. Markson

If you're sick you might be inclined to call and cancel your next adjustment with us, but it's important that you still come in! Just like you wouldn't cancel an appointment with your physician if you were sick, you shouldn't cancel your appointment with us and here's why:

Your Nervous System is Linked to Your Immune System: If your spine is performing optimally your immune system can do it's job properly. 

Your symptoms are serving an important purpose: Typical symptoms like a runny nose, cough, lethargy, etc. indicate that your immune system is doing it's job. For example, a runny nose helps to excrete the virus or organisms. Your body is designed to fight off illness and chiropractic helps to make sure your body does so flawlessly. 

Still want to skip because you're contagious?

If you have the flu, strep or are in other stages of a contagious sickness call us to let us know and see if you can reschedule your appointment to the beginning or end of our adjusting hours so that you can still receive care without spreading illness.
