Boost Your Immune System
For over 100 years Chiropractors have been very successful at treating patients with a multitude of ailments all stemming from misalignments or dysfunction in their spines. Research has shown that when there is misalignment in the spine it will decrease nervous system function and can lead to not only musculoskeletal issues but many possible issues in other systems in the body as well. One of these systems is the Immune System.
How can Chiropractic Treatment Impact Immunity?
The spinal column is comprised of many bones called vertebra that must be in proper alignment to allow the body to have proper function and optimal motion. When there is a misalignment caused by an injury, poor posture, or poor nutrition, this is when we can see different levels move out of proper alignment and start to operate in a dysfunctional motion. The dysfunction can and will lead to nervous system interference as a result of the exiting nerve roots being irritated and possibly compromised and damaged at those levels. These nerves carry impulses which control the function of both muscle and corresponding organs, systems and immune system responses. When a person has their spine in proper alignment and nervous system running efficiently it has very little issue battling exposed to viruses, bacteria, or chemicals. When the nervous system is affected negatively the body loses the ability to properly respond to an irritant, an injury and or an improper stimulation to the body. This is why some people get sick when exposed to sick people and other people are resistant.
Studies and Facts
Research has shown that patients who had received chiropractic care had a greater immune competence than those patients that had not received chiropractic treatments. Dr. Goldberg has over 20 years of experience evaluating and treating patients to remove spinal misalignments that can cause immune system compromise. In one study it was found that patients who received chiropractic care had an outstanding 200% increase in overall immune system health and function in comparison to those who did not receive chiropractic treatment. After treatment it was noticed that specific cells in the immune system increased through phagocytosis.
In another study of HIV patients, results confirmed that being adjusted by a chiropractor helps to improve immunity. The result of the study that was conducted showed a 46 % increase in specific white blood cells that help the immune system fight infections. Those who were part of the control group that did not receive chiropractic adjustments showed a decrease in the same cells over the same period.
