Why Should You See Your Chiropractor During Winter?

Winter is a season when many individuals experience health issues that can make everyday life rough. Whether it is a cold, flu, slip and fall on the ice or shoveling injury, many people will find their overall health compromised at some point during winter.

Thankfully, chiropractic care can help keep you healthy during winter. Paying a visit to your chiropractor during the cold season can help reduce, if not prevent, health problems as well as keep you feeling your best. If you are thinking of skipping that chiropractor visit due to the cold, these reasons should convince you to undergo chiropractic care.

1.Combat Cold and Flu- When people think of winter health problems, cold and flu are the first two things that come out of their minds. This time of year can trigger a rise in bacteria and viruses in human populations. Fortunately, you can strengthen the immune system of your body by undergoing chiropractic care. This allows you to fight off cold and flu by fortifying your immune system.  After an adjustment your immune system is increased by up to 48% for the next 24-48 hours.

2.Prevent Depression- Another frequent problem during winter is depression (SAD). Chiropractic care can help individuals who have depression by stimulating their central nervous system and regulating their hormone production. You are just one adjustment away from a good mood!

3.Stop the Body from Getting Stiff- Winter can make people’s muscles stiff due to decreased blood flow to your muscles and tendons. Apart from becoming inflexible, you may find it difficult to stretch your muscles. When you visit your chiropractor,  she will help keep the stiffness away by ensuring that your spine stays properly aligned.

4. Reduce Body Pain- Experiencing pain can lead to more discomfort and a decrease in mobility, plus the winter weather can bring additional pain to your joints. With a few gentle spinal adjustments, you can move your joints without much discomfort and stiffness and alleviate additional inflammation due to the cold weather.

5. Minimize the Risk of Winter Sport Injuries- If you injure yourself after playing a winter sport, seek help from a chiropractor. Rebuilding your coordination and strength with proper chiropractic care is possible. Additionally, your chiropractor will help you recover faster to allow you to resume your activities throughout the winter.
