Studies have shown that chiropractic care can have a positive effect on the immune system. A study found that people under chiropractic care had a 200% greater immune competence than those without!
Another study conducted at Life University took a group of HIV positive patients and applied chiropractic care on them for six months. After the six months, this group had a 48% increase in the number of CD4 cells, an important immune system component. Meanwhile, another group of HIV positive patients who received no chiropractic care experienced a near 8% decrease in those cells.
Immune System and Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care focuses on improving the function of the nervous system, which affects the immune system. The nervous system controls all functions of the body so maintaining the nervous system is vital to overall health. Hence why in so many cases, the immune system gets a boost thanks to chiropractic care. Chiropractic adjustments can help align the body to function as effectively as possible.
Low immunity can cause an array of problems like allergies, asthma, diabetes, and even some forms of cancer. Keeping the immune system healthy is important to prevent disease and fight off any pre-existing conditions.
Your chiropractor can give your immune system a boost and improve your health!
