An apple a day keeps the doctor away and so may your chiropractor.


Chiropractic care has long been known to boost immune system function. Patients under regular chiropractic care get less frequent colds, flu and viruses compared to people who are not under chiropractic care. And if a chiropractic patient under regular care does get sick the duration and intensity is typically less.  Here is the science.  Research shows that chiropractic care increases the rate at which the body’s DNA repairs itself.  This is an important marker for immune system health.  In addition, science shows that when the thoracic spine in the middle back area is adjusted there is an immediate increase in white blood cells.  White blood cells are the infection fighting, immune system blood cells.  Lastly, in blood serum lab testing, chiropractic patients are shown to have higher levels of resistance enzymes.  The higher the level of these enzymes, the better your immune system functions and the healthier you are. 

Think of the implications of increased immune system function in the health of your family. When the chiropractor adjusts the spine of your children, that means there could be less colds, less flu , less school absence!!

As far as pregnancy is concerned, it is very important for the pregnant women to have 9 months of good health. Chiropractic care, boosting immune system function, can help with a healthier pregnancy.

Plus, no drugs or medications. 100% natural.
