Chiropractic Care and its effects on the immune system
In the current period where the world is already combating the Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease pandemic, it is our responsibility to adapt to a healthier lifestyle and habits. The lifestyle modification should involve activities that could boost your immune systems such as physical activity, diet, and use of natural immune boosters.
The inculcation of regular chiropractic care in your regime is one such natural immune booster that can give you tremendous benefits both physically and mentally. Its effects can be seen for a longer period.
The immune system is a defense system of our bodies. It protects us from diseases, infections, and toxins. It comprises cells, tissues, and different organs. They detect and keep the record of foreign bodies and destroy them quickly.
The abnormalities in the immune system can lead to different diseases such as autoimmune disorders, immunodeficiencies, and different allergies. These abnormalities are generated if the immune system is overactive or underactive.
Improvement of the immune system can prevent us from different diseases. There are many ways to enhance and improve your immune system but natural boosters such as diet, lifestyle modification are friendly and easy to adapt. One of such lifestyle modifications is through Chiropractic care.
When you hear about chiropractic care the first thought strikes to mind is back pain, neck pain, and spinal manipulation. Chiropractic care is the non-surgical treatment of disorders of the musculoskeletal system and nervous system. It involves different therapies that revolve around the manipulation and alignment of the spine and surrounding structures. The benefits provided by Chiropractic care are much deeper than the pain and alignment. It also aids in improving and enhancing your immune function.
Spinal manipulation and immune response
You may have heard from some of the people that immune-related illnesses have been cured successfully through Chiropractic care.
Many clinicians have also observed in their practice the improvement in the symptoms of different immune-related diseases such as allergy, flu, and respiratory infections.
A study conducted by Dr. Pero measured the immune system of patients under chiropractic care and the general population and those with serious diseases such as cancer. The Immune system competence of patients under chiropractic care was 200% greater than the general population and patients under chiropractic care had 400% greater competence than those with cancer and serious diseases.
Role of the nervous system in generating an immune response
Chiropractic care improves the function of the nervous system and the functions of the body. The research is consistently working to show the improvement of the immune system through chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care helps in improving immunity through the nervous system. The nervous system and immune system interplay to create the optimal balance of the body. Both systems produce tiny molecular messengers and hormones to interact with each other and with the rest of the body and organs. These molecular messengers and hormones are known as neuroimmune substances such as neuropeptides, cytokines.
The central nervous system gathers the information from the entire body and passes it on to the brain. The brain then directly influences the receptors of the immune system through the nerve cells to trigger the immune response. If any harmful foreign substance enters the body the immune system sends the signals to the brain. The brain then sends the signals to the nervous system to initiate the response.
Different studies have shown the increased number of antibodies and other essential cells of the immune system after chiropractic manipulation.
- Some people showed improvement in their conditions who were affected by the cold, flu and sore throat.
- Some cases showed the acceleration in their process of recovery after the chiropractic care.
- Many studies showed that chiropractic care is a gentle means of supporting the immune system.
- It optimizes the body’s functions by stimulating lymphatic drainage. The toxins can be removed from the body.
- The objective of chiropractic care is to improve the daily functions of the body by removing any interference in the nervous system, as it controls the entire body. The manipulation of the inflamed area reduces the stress from the nervous system and nerve cells function at their peak level. It relaxes the nerves and improves the communication of the nervous system to the whole body. In return, the proper functioning of the body can be restored and the immune system can be boosted.
A robust immune system leads to a healthy body that performs optimal body functions. There are many things one can do daily to boost the immune system. Executing these standard practices helps in improving the immune system but incorporating daily chiropractic care can boost your immune system by natural means to combat the diseases.
