Chiropractic & The Common Cold?
But chiropractic is just for backs! Not so. In fact, many people seeing chiropractors for spinal pain find a general improvement in their health that includes fewer and less severe colds and other respiratory problems.

The Common Cold The common cold (acute coryza 45) is associated with viruses that affect the nose, throat, larynx (voice box) and sinuses. That means stuffed and runny nose, scratchy throat, watery eyes, stuffed sinuses and congestion: the usual. What makes the common cold different from other viral or bacterial infections of the respiratory tract is the absence of high fever.

What Causes A Cold?
Breathing in cold viruses does not in itself cause a cold. If you try to give someone a cold, for example, it takes more than a virus. Experimenters have incubated cold viruses, placed them directly on the mucous lining of the nose, and found that their subjects came down with colds only 12 percent of the time. For germs to grow in you, you must first he fertile soil.

The Chiropractic Approach
Chiropractic doesnít treat the common cold. However, chiropractic patients have noticed that their natural resistance to colds increases and chiropractors have often heard patients tell them that, "I havenít had a cold (or if I get a cold I get over it so much faster) since Iíve been under chiropractic care." Natural resistance is the only reason why your cold goes away rather than lasting for weeks, months or your entire lifetime!

Chiropractic care can help raise your natural resistance to disease by removing a serious interference to your proper body function: vertebral subluxations.

What Are Vertebral Subluxations?
Vertebral subluxations (VS) are misaligned vertebrae in your spine that interfere with your nerves and the flow of information and energy between your brain and the rest of your body. VS lowers your natural resistance to disease by unbalancing your nervous system. Chiropractors perform spinal examinations to detect and locate vertebral subluxations in your body, then correct them by giving chiropractic spinal adjustments. This relieves spinal nerve stress and helps restore optimal body functioning for higher resistance to disease, which, we cannot overstate, is the best defense against the common cold.

Too many of us know the classic symptoms of the flu: fever of lOl°~lO3°, backache, headache, muscle and joint pain, runny nose, congestion, sore throat and cough that may continue irregularly for three or four days. The flu can cause serious problems in those, like the elderly, who are very weak and have little resistance; in some cases it may develop into pneumonia. Yet for most of us the flu is little more than an annoying illness.

Keeping your spinal column free from vertebral subluxations helps keep your natural immunity high. Whatever else you do for yourself, it is essential, if you are suffering from the flu, colds or respiratory problems, that your spinal column be healthy; it could make the difference between a quick recovery and a lingering illness (even between life and death).

Chiropractors, also known as doctors of chiropractic or chiropractic physicians, diagnose and treat patients whose health problems are associated with the bodyís muscular, nervous, and skeletal systems, especially the spine. Interference with these systems impairs the bodyís normal functions and lowers its resistance to disease. Spinal or vertebral dysfunction alters many important body functions by affecting the nervous system. Skeletal imbalance through joint or articular dysfunction, especially in the spine, can cause pain. Chiropractors provide natural, drugless, non-surgical health treatments and rely on the bodyís inherent recuperative abilities. In many cases, a patientís difficulties can be traced to the involvement of musculoskeletal structures; usually spinal subluxations are at the root of the problem. Chiropractors adjust the spinal column to correct these subluxations. This helps to correct the structural and functional problems with the patients joints and nervous system.
