• Chiropractor discusses improving immune system function

As a chiropractor, with 30 years of practicle experience, I have seen the benefits of spinal adjusting first hand. Everyday, patients come to my office with a variety of conditions ranging from neck and back pain to headaches and sciatica. Children with ear infections, pregnant mothers-to-be and athletes looking to improve sports performance are all typical cases. But what impresses me the most, is how the chiropractor when adjusting the spine, influences the immune system in such a beneficial way. Its all about the nerves. The nervous system controls every other system in the body, including the immune system. Spinal nerve pressure from subluxated misaligned spinal bones interferes with how the nervous system functions, decreasing health potential. As proved by scientific research, when the chiropractor adjusts the spine, 3 major things happen. One, there is an immediate increase in white blood cell production. White blood cells are the immune system fighting cells.  Two, spinal adjustments increase the rate at which the body's DNA repairs itself (an important marker for immune system function). And lastly, regular chiropractic care, over time increases resistance enzymes in the body, helping to fight off germs and viruses. My experience as a chiropractor has shown me that people under regular chiropractic care are healthier and if a body does get sick, a spinal adjustment applied by a chiropractor is one of the best things you can do to heal and become healthier. Chiropractic care can cut the length and severity of the common cold. I see it happen in my office all the time.
