The evidence is in. People who receive chiropractic adjustments on a regular basis have a stronger immune system (up to 200% stronger) than people who do not see a chiropractor. Adults and children experience less flu, colds, allergies, viruses and pain. Chiropractic helps those who suffer from prenatal discomfort, migraines, tension headaches, and back or neck pain.
The reason is--chiropractic adjustments strengthen the immune system. The immune system is controlled by the nervous system. The central nervous system is responsible for coordinating and controlling all bodily functions. Chiropractic focuses on aligning the skeletal system so that ligaments, nerves, muscles, tendons and internal organs can operate optimally. By correcting spinal alignment, stress on the spine is removed, improving the nervous system communication with the brain. The immune system is boosted.
Chiropractors treat the spine to correct spinal abnormalities, which are known as subluxations. Subluxations place pressure on the nerves, which interferes with nervous system functioning. When the nervous system is not performing as it should, the result is a breakdown of the immune system. And a weakened immune system makes the body more susceptible to illness and viruses.
Besides adjustments and subluxation correction for pain or other symptoms, chiropractic care works to resolve the core problem. It encompasses three main types of care that strengthen the immune system, the body and restores and optimizes health. These include:
Preventative and Restorative Care. Spinal adjustments, exercise, nutrition and lifestyle review can help prevent re-injury to patients while recovering from a health or pain issue. Advanced Muscle Integration Therapy (AMIT) may also be recommended to re-activate muscles. The de-activation of a muscle causes imbalance, weakness, lowered ability and performance, and often pain.
Maintenance and Wellness Care. This chiropractic care involves regular adjustments to help keep patients healthy. Therapies in addition to chiropractic care may include massage, exercise, nutritional supplements, lifestyle review and, A.M.I.T may be recommended to holistically treat the body.
Home Therapy. Home therapy can include specific exercises recommended by the doctor, nutritional supplementation, lifestyle adjustments, the use of heating pads or ice packs as needed, and suggestions on ways to improve sitting and standing postures to help restore and optimize health.
Chiropractic is a natural, non-invasive and holistic approach to health care. The focus is on resolving core issues, improving the function of all systems in the body. It all begins with the nervous system. Chiropractic care is true health care, not disease care. And regular chiropractic adjustments help to maintain a healthy immune system and fight against illness, allergies and infections, and injuries. The goal is optimizing human performance.
