Beyond Pain Relief: Chiropractic Contributions to Immune System Health

Beyond Pain Relief: Chiropractic Contributions to Immune System Health

Chiropractic treatment is typically associated with back pain relief, but treatment offers a broader range of benefits that also extend to immune system health. At Deep Roots Chiropractic Health Center, we take a holistic approach to wellness that offers a variety of benefits for the entire body, including investigating immune system health. We believe in not just treating your symptoms but working with you to identify the root cause to help you prevent future injuries and illnesses while reducing chronic pain, improving joint mobility, and ensuring proper spinal alignment. 

Chiropractic techniques focus on the spine. The spinal cord controls the nervous system, which works with your immune system to help your body heal when you're injured or sick, adapt to changes in the environment, and fight off viruses and bacteria. Getting regular chiropractic treatments from an experienced chiropractor can improve spine health, immune health, range of motion, and nervous system communication. Regular check-ups can also reduce a person's risk of injury while addressing pain symptoms and musculoskeletal issues and providing treatment that will promote optimal health. 

How Your Immune System Works at a Glance

The immune system is designed to prevent germs from entering the body, limiting their harm if they do enter. The immune system is also responsible for helping the body recover and heal when a person is sick. When the immune system is working optimally, a person may not even realize it’s working. However, when it’s not working properly, a person can develop an infection or illness.

How Chiropractic Care Can Contribute to Your Immune System

Research has suggested that chiropractic adjustments can have a positive impact on immune system function and spinal health. When the spine is in alignment, nerve pathways are not obstructed. This facilitates efficient communication between the immune system and the brain, suggesting the ability of enabling the immune system to respond and identify any potential threats more effectively. With improved communication, chiropractic care helps the body maintain a proactive stance against illnesses, allowing individuals to achieve their health goals. 

Nervous System Health and Immune System Health

The nervous system includes the nerves, spinal cord, and brain, and coordinates and controls all body functions. It also effectively communicates with the immune system to allow it to adequately and promptly respond to threats. Chiropractic adjustments focus on maintaining spinal alignment and ensuring optimal nervous system function. Chiropractic adjustments involve the application of controlled force to joints in the spine to address misalignments. These misalignments can result in nerve interference, which can negatively impact the nervous system’s ability to effectively communicate with the immune system. By correcting misalignments, chiropractic treatment restores proper nerve flow, enhancing nervous system function. 

Stress Reduction and Immune System Function

Chiropractors use noninvasive, natural treatment approaches, without the use of harmful medication or invasive procedures. A chiropractor will use a combination of hands-on techniques and treatments to address misalignments. Spinal adjustments can help reduce the production of stress hormones, which can negatively impact the immune system. Reducing pressure on the joints and spine and eliminating muscle tension can also help reduce the effects of stress on the body.
