The Chiropractors at AICA College Park treat hundreds of patients each year who suffer from symptoms associated with the common cold.
The germs and bacteria that cause cold-like symptoms easily transfer from one host to another; making it easy for people to get sick based on a brief to extended meetings with others carrying such germs.
To avoid catching a cold this winter, check out the following recommendations offered by AICA College Park.
Colds and What Cause Them
What’s referred to as the “common cold” is often caused by bacteria and viruses that affect your:
Unlike other bacterial or viral infections that affect your respiratory system, bugs do not cause fevers for those who are infected.
In fact, cold symptoms tend to be far less traumatic than those associated with the flu. Where someone with the flu tends to suffer from high fevers and intense body aches, those who have a cold often experience:
- Stuffy or running noses
- Scratchy or dry throats
- Thick congestion
- Watery eyes
Colds can not be transferred through the air. Instead, the type of germs that make up a virus can only develop within an already weakened immune system.
Why Traditional Medicine Isn’t Enough
When most people catch a cold, they tend to rely on some over-the-counter medications that suppress or numb their symptoms, rather than treat them.
These types of medications are meant to provide temporary relief to force you to purchase more.
That’s why it’s important to utilize treatment solutions that stimulate your immune system and support its ability to fend off harmful viruses and bacteria.
How AICA College Park’s Chiropractors Can Help
Regular Chiropractic treatment is extremely effective for improving your body’s natural ability to resist the type of viruses that cause colds.
Chiropractic Adjustments remove all interferences from your spine and internal systems, allowing your blood and nerve signals to circulate throughout your body. When this happens, the enzymes that are produced by your pancreas can improve your white blood cell count to meet the demands of whatever foreign substances are trying to attack your system.
When our Chiropractors can remove stress from your nerves, your body can function and perform at a much higher level. This is why Chiropractic care is the ultimate form of cold prevention for residents throughout College Park!
