Chiropractic Care: a Drug-Free Way to a Healthy Immune System

Chiropractic CareOur bodies are a miraculous combination of muscles, bones, organs, connective tissue, and blood working (often silently) in concert. Unfortunately, when illness gains a foothold, headaches, fever, muscle pain, and other nasty symptoms signal that our immune system is gearing up to attack the invader. A visit to the doctor will often result in a regimen of antibiotics, decongestants, or other medications to boost the immune system’s protective prowess.

Drawbacks of Traditional Treatment

However, many savvy individuals are unwilling to subject themselves and their children to drugs that may treat the ailment—yet give rise to antibiotic-resistant bacteria or cause drowsiness and other unpleasant side effects. Fortunately, there are other ways to jump-start the immune system.

Basics of Nonmedical Therapy

Chiropractors are at the front lines in this battle to return patients to optimum health without the use of medications. When the spine is misaligned (subluxation is the technical term for this condition), nerve pathways are compressed and irritated—and this stress affects the immune system’s ability to ward off infection.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Clinical studies and practicing chiropractors alike demonstrate spinal adjustment’s positive effects on immune response.
  • Patients have been shown to experience a 200% rise in immune capabilities over those not receiving treatment.
  • Individuals suffering from sore throats, colds, sinus discomfort, and stomach viruses mention that their symptoms lessen following sessions.
  • In a study conducted to determine chiropractic adjustment’s immune system benefits, blood drawn 15 minutes before and after treatment exhibited a significantly higher immune response than samples from people receiving bogus adjustments.
  • Many case studies show that children with ear infections experience significant to complete relief in only a few sessions.
Chiropractic adjustments are a boon for individuals seeking a drug-free way to health and well-being. They may be just what the doctor ordered.
