How to Get Rid of Inflammation

It’s HOT. It’s SUMMER. And it’s fabulous, isn’t it?

This summer definitely looks much different than we’ve ever seen before. However, summer still brings a source of fun, refreshing, and celebration.

The hot weather also has me thinking about inflammation, and the damaging effects that chronic inflammation can have on the body. 

We see it with our patients. Every. Single. Day.

Inflammation in your back or body can feel like having the scorching sun on the inside of you. Ouch!

Pain is definitely a concern, but what you may not know is that disease begins with chronic inflammation at a cellular level. 

Science has proven that chronic inflammation is associated with many diseases like heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, and bowel diseases like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

Harvard’s Men’s Health Watch published this, ”when inflammation gets turned up too high and lingers for a long time, and the immune system continues to pump out white blood cells and chemical messengers that prolong the process, that’s known as chronic inflammation.”


Dr. Robert H. Shmerling, medical editor of Understanding Inflammation from Harvard Health Publishing says about chronic inflammation, “From the body’s perspective, it’s under consistent attack, so the immune system keeps fighting indefinitely.”

That’s a problem. A major problem.

When it comes to your immune system, it’s a war out IN there! That’s why we’re here to help…

We’ve declared July as the month of LIFE, LIBERTY, and ADJUSTMENTS FOR ALL.

So that’s what we’re doing. We’re celebrating the entire month, and are adjusting lots of wonderful people, because unfortunately “subluxations” don’t take vacations.

You may be asking yourself, “What’s subluxation?”

I’m glad you asked.

Subluxations are vertebral (spinal) misalignments that interfere with the proper function of your nervous system, and can cause inflammation, among many other problems in the body.

This is what we do as chiropractors, we detect and correct subluxations to keep the nervous system functioning optimally.


Because your nervous system controls every function in your body, including your immune system. 

Subluxations cause pain and inflammation. Although, you can also have misalignments in your spine and not experience pain in the early stages. This is why I recommend that people get checked for vertebral subluxation on a regular basis. 

You don’t want to wait until you have a toothache before you see your dentist, right?

This is why we’re offering FREE consultations and spinal evaluations in the month of July to give you, and those you love, peace of mind. Especially during this time of increased threat to your immune system due to COVID-19.

Building a strong immune system is essential to being healthy. So is decreasing the inflammation you have in your body.

I agree with Dr. Shmerling when he says that the best approach to preventing conditions related to chronic inflammation is to go “…back to the basics: maintaining a healthy weight, choosing a good diet, getting plenty of sleep, and exercising regularly.”

When it comes to bringing healthy back, we must go BACK to the basics, and it begins with caring for your body, spine and nervous system (which includes your immune system.) It’s about tending to your inner healer, and that begins with you.

You’re not alone. We’re in this with you, and look forward to checking your spine for subluxations and determining the best steps to help you be, and stay, healthy and safe.
