Edmond Chiropractor: Naturally Helping To Keep Flu Away
Every year influenza (flu) statistics are released by the Oklahoma State Department of Health to indicate that society is still greatly impacted by the illness. Hundreds of people are hospitalized and several persons have died from the flu. Did you know that aside from getting treatment at an urgent care, our Edmond chiropractor can help during the flu season to keep your family feeling healthy?
In case you’re not sure whether you have the flu or not, here are some symptoms that are common signs:
- Sore throat
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Body aches
While some people do get very serious flu symptoms that need treatment, others may experience only mild illness and do not need medical care or antiviral drugs. If you get sick with flu symptoms, in most cases, you should stay home and avoid contact with other people except to get medical care.
Our Edmond chiropractor would say that the best thing to do is to be proactive and take care of yourself before you actually get sick. When treated right, your body will be your best defense against infections like the flu. All too often, patients allow their bodies to function at a less than optimal level which compromises the immune system.
Since your spine is the main hub for all of your body’s signals, getting the spine adjusted regularly is suggested to keep your immune system working its very best. Our Edmond chiropractor has already seen signs of the flu appearing and we’d love to help you fight off germs and viruses during this nasty season.
