“A strong immune system is the result of proper nutrition, pain free exercise, and maintaining your body mass index. All of which can be helped with the guidance of your local chiropractor."

According to Bridge MI:
Nearly two years into the COVID-19 pandemic, researchers are learning more about why so many obese people are hospitalized and dying from the coronavirus — and that could have big implications for Michigan.[…]A study by Stanford University researchers offers new clues. It found that the virus penetrates fat cells, which can act something like a COVID-19 storage tank ─ and trigger a potentially fatal immune response in the body. While not yet peer reviewed, the study may shed light on why overweight patients are so vulnerable to the virus.[…] More than a third of Michigan adults are obese, 35 percent, and experts say the research underlines a critical need to address a health problem that crosses all demographies.
Why Chiropractic Care?
In addition to helping reduce back and neck pain, research shows chiropractic is beneficial in reducing headaches and digestive issues, while also improving immune function.
Faster injury recovery
Studies have linked chiropractic care with faster healing.
Injury prevention
If the musculoskeletal (bones and tissue) system is out of alignment, due to overtraining for instance, it can create tension in one area of the body. And if this tension is able to persist, a sprain, strain, or other similar injury can result.
Improved strength
Chiropractic care athletes improves strength. A study involving elite Taekwondo athletes received one session of care and the resulted in increased muscle strength when compared to a control group. 
Increased flexibility
“All athletes can benefit from performance flexibility” according to the United States Sports Academy. Greater flexibility offers greater injury protection and improved sports performance.
