How Chiropractic Care Boosts Immunity | Chiropractor for Wellness in Boulder, CO
Hello, everyone. Dr. Duff and Dr. Emery here from TCB Chiropractic. Today, we want to talk about how chiropractic care can serve as a natural boost for the immune system.
The Nervous System
Let’s start by understanding that the brain and nervous system control all functions in the body by sending signals through the spinal cord and nerves to every cell, tissue, organ, and system. However, stress, injuries, and trauma can cause the spine to shift out of its normal position, disrupting this communication. Misalignments or subluxations in the spine can impede the flow of energy and communication, leading to inflammation along the nerves and affecting organ function. This can result in pain, discomfort, and alterations in various bodily functions, including the immune system. To assess immune system function, chiropractors examine the nervous system through the spine. Tests for misalignments involve assessing posture, joint motion, and nerve strength in the upper back and neck. These misalignments can impact not only pain and discomfort but also organ function, influencing digestion, respiratory function, and more.
How Chiropractic Helps
Chiropractors use a specific technique involving exercises, adjustments, and traction to address these misalignments. The goal is not just symptom relief but also long-term improvement in immune system function. Monitoring progress is essential, and patients are asked about changes in symptoms, frequency, and severity of issues. Research has shown that a single chiropractic adjustment can lead to a 139% increase in immunoglobulins, which play a crucial role in fighting off pathogens. Additionally, chiropractic care can help individuals recover more quickly from illnesses. The approach at TCB Chiropractic involves a thorough examination to identify misalignments, effective intervention to correct them, and ongoing efforts to maintain structural improvements for long-term health.
