Your Immune System & Chiropractic

Posted on Dec 23, 2016


Inside your body there’s a network of cells, tissues and organs working together to defend your body against attacks by foreign invaders. This is your immune system, and it’s purpose is to deal with and get rid of bacteria, parasites, fungi and more so you’ll be healthy rather than sick. Obviously, you want your immune system to function at its best in order to feel your best.

Chiropractic care can help your immune system function well. Studies have shown that people who have chiropractic adjustments experience increased biological activity afterward regarding their immune system cells. Did you know, for example, that patients who went through the Influenza Epidemic of 1918 and received chiropractic care had higher survival rates than those who did not? Indeed, chiropractic care (as a profession) thrived thanks to this.

Chiropractors do manual adjustments on your body in order to deal with subluxations. This is a term referring to misalignments of the spine which irritate nerve pathways and interfere with the normal functioning of various organs. When the spine is misaligned, more stress is put on the body and the immune system has a harder time doing its job.

The immune system is linked to your body’s nervous and endocrine systems, too. Anytime these systems experience inflammation, for whatever reason, a person has problems, from depression to arthritis, for example. Chronic infections and cancer can also be worsened when a person’s neuro-endo-immune system response isn’t “up to par.”

Thankfully, chiropractors like Dr. Gerard of Lakewoods Chiropractic can analyze the spine to find subluxations. Then, corrective adjustments are given by hand, which reduce stress on the body’s important systems. In practical studies, chiropractic patients have been found to have what’s called “greater immune competence” than people not receiving chiropractic care. Chiropractic care is a natural way to help your body heal itself and stay strong.

Your body is like a boxer. If it’s in top shape, it can knock-out opponents. If not, it gets beaten up and feels bad. Therefore, a great way to keep your body’s immune system in tip-top shape– fighting against any unwanted body invaders– is to receive regular chiropractic care. Call 651-464-0800 to schedule your appointment at Lakewoods Chiropractic.

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
