When we treat patients in chiropractic, most of the time they have some musculoskeletal problem like pain in their neck, pain in their back and they’ve come to us for treatment thus chiropractic care works very well for that however there is a hidden factor that needs to be considered.
Remember that our brain control every aspect of our body it is an electrical generator and it controls every aspect either directly or indirectly which means I can move my arms because that’s a voluntary motion that I tell myself to do or my food will digest and my lungs will get air in and out and I don’t have to tell them that to do as that’s the involuntary aspect.
The involuntary aspect of our nervous system is controlled by the sympathetic nervous system. The automatic system controls our breathing and digestion but also our immune system.
Your immune system fights things off and your body is a constant battle with something because we are always being affected by something we breathe something we’ve ingested.
There are so many poor holes of entry in our body that our immune system is always on. You know by being adjusted and by keeping the joints of your back functioning better reduces stress onto the nervous system (spinal cord). And by doing so allows the immune system to have the appropriate energy and connection to the brain.
So next time you are adjusted for your sore back remember that there is no alternative effect that always happens there is a stimulus that can take place that helps to stimulate your immune system to function better.
WHAT IS CHIROPRACTIC CARE?
Chiropractic is a total and protective measure of health that focuses on the well-being of the body rather than the ailment. The main focus of chiropractors is your nervous system as it keeps check on your all body aspects.
The brain sends messages through the spinal cord across a huge network of spinal nerves to deliver information to every cell, organ, and system of the body. The little misalignment of the spine can obstruct the body's normal functioning. The professionals perform the spinal evaluation with their hands as their basic instrument.
The end goal of the treatment is to reinstate normal nerve communication and assist the body in recouping on its own.
Spine-health and the immune system:
When there occurs any misalignment in the spine that will affect the body’s communication it ultimately weakens the immune system of the body so the best way to boost immunity in such a crisis is chiropractic care. The studies have shown that chiropractic adjustment strengthens the immune system by 200%.
As we know chiropractors rather than treating the symptoms of the disease, help the body help itself by allowing the body to work at its optimal best.
Chiropractic care boosts your immune system in the following ways:
- Correct misalignments: by aligning the spines in a right place with the use of chiropractic adjustment we can reduce the chances of any infection by strengthening your immune system.
- Decrease inflammation: sometimes due to misalignment there occurs inflammation in the spinal cord and by chiropractic treatment, that inflammation can be reduced
- Relieve pressure within the spine: with the help of upper cervical chiropractic care, the pressure among the spines due to misalignment can be lessened.
So, the nervous system is the manager of the body and everything is related to it. When there is an issue in your nervous system (spinal cord) your other body organs will suffer the effect that will cause harm to your immune system and your immunity gets weaken within days.
Thus the professional chiropractors recommend a special diet as well as do the physical adjustment with their hands from time to time for better results.
During Coronavirus outbreak:
During this pandemic, to boost your immune system do exercise regularly and thus movement will keep the spines align and will reduce the chances of any infection. Because only a strengthened immunity can protect you from this novel virus so chiropractic adjustment is the only way that can be also be done by regular exercise at home at such a crucial time.
When it is the matter of your body always be proactive about it and not reactive.
Studies on chiropractic care and immunity:
Studies have shown that dramatic immunity superiority doesn't diminish in the people with age who have experienced chiropractic care. Also, the doctors have not observed such positive improvements in normal patients.
The chiropractic and immune system connection were kind of authorized in 1991 where the specialists found the improved immune system among the patients experiencing chiropractic treatment.
Thus several studies also have shown the relation between the nervous system and the immune system while experiencing chiropractic treatment.
Chiropractic care is amazingly helpful not only for adults but for also children so if you can’t go to the doctor just keep your body moving and keep every bone aligned in its exact place. That will improve your immune system at a magnificent rate.
Evidence in history:
Immunity boosting by chiropractic care also has historical grounds. For example, during the flu pandemic in 1918. The officials witnessed that the average number of people who died under chiropractic care during this severe pandemic was way less than that of other patients.
During chiropractic treatment, your spinal cord straightens and your immune system strengthens. It means the spinal adjustment prepares your body to defend against infection by improving your defense system. So it is not wrong to say that the health of the nervous system is the health of your whole body in the presence of a strong immune system.
Thus chiropractic treatment is the best thing you can do to your body as there is no usage of drugs and medicines so no fear of any side effects.
This adjustment of the spines by evaluation of the spinal cord is one of the ultimate causes to boost one’s immune system. As you have seen data from the studies and also have observed the historical perspective, you can improve your defense against different diseases by just going to the chiropractors.
