Chiropractic Spinal adjustments may one day be considered to be the best preventative treatment for the flu. Chiropractic care has long been known to help improve overall health.  Research now shows that spinal adjustments as performed by the chiropractor can improve the rate at which the body's DNA can repair itself. DNA repair is an importan measure of immune system function. In addition, when the chiropractor performs a thoracic spinal adjustment, there is an increase in white blood cell production. White blood cells are the body's infection fighting cells. Lastly, spinal adjustments when performed on a regular basis show enlarged markers for resistance enzymes.  Resistance enyzme levels are high in people with properly functioning immune systems.  These 3 areas of measuring immune system function are all important values for immune system health.
