How can Osteopathy at Dalhousie Health & Wellness help you through this flu season?
The immune system's function is based on the health of the circulatory and lymphatic system. When there are mechanical restrictions in our structure, i.e. postural issues, chronic aches and pains, repetitive strain patterns through sport, there is stress placed not only on the soft and boney tissues of the body, but also onto the fluid mechanics of the deeper organ systems. This impacting the immune system by reducing the flow capacity of arterial blood to supply nutrients to the body tissues, as well as limiting the drainage of lymph and venous blood from these tissues.
Osteopathy helps by alleviating restrictions and asymmetries within the body, the circulatory system and lymphatic system have a better chance of functionality, granting your immune system a better chance to battle the germs and viruses of the season.
