Our Immune System is Only as Strong as Our Nervous System | Chiropractor in Boulder, CO
Hello, everyone. Dr.Duff here from Terry Chiropractic in Boulder. Today, I want to discuss how chiropractic care can contribute to improving immune system function.
In chiropractic, we focus on the spine and nervous system as the foundation for overall health and strength in the body. There’s a growing field called neuroimmunology, which explores the relationship between the nervous system and the immune system. Chiropractors assess nervous system function through detailed exams, including various tests to understand how the nervous system influences immune system signaling, hormone secretion, and the functioning of immune system glands.
Complete Health Consultations
During consultations, we delve into patients’ health history, discussing factors such as the frequency of illness and any existing immune system disorders. A healthy immune system has a natural ability to combat pathogens and toxins, but increased demands on the body, whether chemical, physical, or emotional, can challenge its effectiveness. Interference in the nervous system, affecting signaling from the brain through the body, is a key consideration. Visualizing the spine, we see the spinal cord running through it, sending nerves to the peripheral nervous system, connecting to immune system glands, the lymphatic system, tonsils, thymus gland, spleen, and skin. Misalignments in the spine can lead to interference in nerve signaling, impacting the functioning of immune system components. At Terry Chiropractic, as we correct misalignments and improve posture, we aim to enhance nervous system function, subsequently supporting improved immune system function. Patients often experience faster recovery from sickness and increased resilience to illnesses.
