Chiropractic Care for Coughs and Colds

by Administrator 7. June 2011 13:59

With the change in season, many children often suffer from cough and cold. In our daily life, these conditions are not taken seriously and are considered as normal. But, in any sense, constant infections can’t be normal. In order to understand why children catch cold easily, it is very important to understand the cause behind it.

What causes cold?

The airborne organisms that cause these coughs and colds enter our body through mouth and nose. Whenever an infected child sneezes or coughs, millions of micro organisms are driven into the air. Children should always be taught to cover their mouth and nose when they cough or sneeze.

But why is it so that some children have more colds than others. This depends upon the functioning capacity of the immune system of every individual. Whenever a micro organism enters our body, the body produces antibodies that help to fight with the infection. If the immune system is not functioning properly, our body is unable to drive away the organisms and thus serve as a host for the infections.

Some of the tips would help you to recover from cough and cold quickly:

  • Get enough rest
  • Drink plenty of liquids
  • Stay at home and avoid getting in touch with other people to shield them from grasping infection 

Role of a Chiropractor

Chiropractic care is primarily aimed at ensuring the balance and effective working of the nervous system which, consecutively, will have considerable effect on the healthy functioning of the immune system. If the immune system of a child is functioning in good health, he will be able to fight off the coughs, colds and other sorts of infections.

If your child reports constant symptoms of cough, cold and sore throat, you must visit your chiropractor. It may minimize the number of infections caught by your child, reduce their absenteeism from school and trim down the medication costs.
