You ask we answer: Should I still go to the chiropractor when I’m sick?
Absolutely! With our focus firmly on helping you make informed and educated choices about your health, we encourage you to continue to attend your appointments when you’re feeling under the weather but able to get out of bed.
Chiropractic care centres on optimising your spinal health. When your body is fighting off an infection, it’s more important than ever to visit your chiropractor for adjustments to support your body to self-heal. Here’s why:
When suffering from a gamut of cold or flu symptoms, it can feel best to stay in bed. Although rest is important to recover from an illness, it is also important to give your body the best opportunity to improve as quickly as possible.
To do this, keep up your adjustments. Attending your chiropractic appointments when unwell can help reduce the severity of your symptoms. Headaches can lighten, sinuses can clear, coughs can loosen and body aches can reduce. This is the benefit of maintaining a healthy spine – your body is in prime condition to heal itself and get on with life. Quick smart.
When to call in sick
Due to COVID-19, if you develop a fever, a cough, sore throat or shortness of breath within 14 days of overseas travel, please follow NSW Health’s advice.
If you are still in the contagious phase of another illness it’s best to contact our team for advice before you cancel. Based on your symptoms or illness, we can advise if it’s safe for you to come in to receive care whilst limiting the risk of infection to other patients.
