May I Keep My Tonsils?

Excessive cases of strep throat, enlarged tonsils, and sickness often lead some patients to having to surgically remove their tonsils.  However, tonsils and adenoids play a huge role in keeping our bodies safe from bacteria and illness.  Large tonsils usually are one of the first warning signs of infection in the body.

Recent studies show a two-year-old girl who got gentle chiropractic adjustments.  She was able to avoid tonsil removal because after a couple months of care, her adenoids and tonsils were no longer becoming enlarged!

Neurologically based chiropractic care corrects nerve interference so the body can function at its full capacity. Our nervous system controls everything, including our immune system. Correcting subluxation addresses the root cause instead of just putting out small fires.

“After getting adjusted, I rarely have sore throats or headaches!”

“I dealt with headaches, knee pain, back pain, IBS, and sore throats for many years. Weekly I would have headaches, sore throats monthly, and this would put me in bed for a few days. I had an appointment to get my tonsils removed but never went. I wasn’t sure if chiropractic would help, but I knew it couldn’t get any worse.

After getting adjusted, I rarely have sore throats or headaches! My back doesn’t hurt, and my knees only hurt when I’m driving for a long period of time. Overall, I have seen a lot of improvement! My entire family now gets adjusted and I would recommend chiropractic to others!
