Chiropractic Care to Maintain Wellness During COVID-19 Crisis

If you’re familiar with the benefits of chiropractic care, you know that the focus is restoring the body to a state of overall health without the use of drugs or invasive interventions. As we all deal with the impact of COVID-19, caring for your wellness is more important than ever.

How Does Chiropractic Care Reduce Stress?

Chiropractic care providers specialize in the musculoskeletal system with an emphasis on spinal care. The spine protects your spinal cord.

Stress and muscle tension can irritate nerves and cause misalignments. Chiropractic adjustments reduce stress and pain, releasing pressure on nerves and boosting your immune system.

COVID-19, Stress, and Your Chiropractic Care Team

The COVID-19 coronavirus crisis is affecting all of us on multiple levels: health, quarantines or limited movement, forced new routines, school cancellations, and the impact economically. It’s no surprise if you are feeling stressed these days.

I’m Dr. Jeremiah Carlson of Jacksonville Chiropractic and Acupuncture. As part of your treatment, I often recommend lifestyle modifications that you can do in your home. After evaluating your body’s health, I may suggest nutritional, relaxation, and exercise goals you can do at home to continue the progress made in our clinic.

 Here are some tips on reducing your stress levels, boosting your immune system, and maintaining your health.


  • Spend time each day relaxing with meditation, yoga, or tapping.

  • Get adequate rest. Good sleep habits are necessary for good health.

  • Pay attention to your posture. You can carry a lot of tension in your neck and shoulders if you become stressed.

  • Maintain an exercise schedule and remain as active as possible even while inside your home.

  • Minimize processed and sugar-heavy foods. Instead, opt for nutritious ingredients, fresh fruits, and vegetables.

  • If you feel you might fall a little short getting all your vitamins and nutrients from food, here are essential immune-system, stress-reducing supplements:

    • Vitamin B 

    • Vitamin C

    • Vitamin D

    • Vitamin E

    • Selenium

    • Zinc

    • Echinacea

    • Probiotics


  • A first aid kit can be useful to have available for minor injuries, especially if you are quarantined. Feeling prepared for emergencies can reduce your stress level.

  • Be kind to yourself. Try to avoid negative self-talk. Mindfulness training is very effective.

  • Think about what activity or hobby brings you joy and make time every day to experience it.

  • EFT tapping is very useful for relaxing and releasing worries and stress.


Coping with Stress during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Regular chiropractic care actually strengthens your immune system. When you constantly feel stressed out for long periods of time, your production of white blood cells decreases. White blood cells are necessary for your body to remain healthy and fight infections. Studies show white blood cell counts increase after chiropractic adjustments.

Stress impacts both your physical and mental state. Your chiropractic care provider can perform regular adjustments and help you achieve your wellness goals.
