Research Indicates That Chiropractic Care Treatments Provides a Boost to the Immune System

When most people think of chiropractic care, they generally relate the care to the treatment of pain in the neck and/or the back and the process of spinal adjustment; however, it has been established – through extensive research – that chiropractic care is a type of preventative medicine that aids in boosting the immune system.

Given the fact that it is flu season, colds are on the uprise, and the cases of COVID-19 are on the rise, it is now more important than ever before to have the strongest immunity possible. By simply visiting a chiropractic, you can accomplish this, and more!

The Immune System

The immune system in our bodies is a highly complex network that consists of cells, various types of tissues, and organs. When these components work together, they aid in fighting off infections and a multitude of diseases. When the immune system identifies an unknown antigen, an attack begins. This is identified as the “immune response”.

Antibodies are immediately created. The immune system is then capable of remembering the attacking antigens in the future. If it is encountered again, the antibodies are sent out to protect you against it; therefore, reducing the likelihood that you will – again – fall ill to that antigen.

To date, three types of immunity have been identified. These are “innate immunity”, “active immunity”, and “passive immunity”.

Chiropractic Care and the Immune System

Chiropractic care aids in the optimization of the function associated with the nervous system and the spinal cord. The immune system has a direct link to the spine. If there is a misalignment or another complication that is similar in nature, it can detrimentally impact the immune system.

A chiropractor has the capability of utilizing various spinal manipulation techniques in order to alleviate any compression, inflammation, and/or spinal misalignments that has developed.

In a study conducted by Dr. Ronald Pero, Ph.D., who is a Chief of the Cancer Prevention Research Center located at the Preventive Medicine Institute in New York and a Professor of Medicine at the highly prestigious New York University, it was established that patients that see a chiropractor have an immune competence rate of 200% more than those that do not.

Additionally, it was established that out of every 10,000 influenza deaths that occur, chiropractic patients only account for 25 deaths; that is only 25 people out of the 10,000 or 0.25% are those that have had chiropractic care. The remaining 9,975 people who died had not received chiropractic care.
