Research has demonstrated that certain parts of your nervous system control and modify your immune system. Defense against infections requires a complex coordination of the activities of the nervous and immune systems, and that abnormalities in the relationships between the two systems can cause illness or disease.
Misalignment of the joints in the spine, inflammation and muscle spasm may all result in irritation and compression of the nerves, compromising the communication between the brain and the immune system.
Chiropractors work with the nerves, joints and muscles of the body. They specialize in working with the spine, the bones that house and protect your nervous system.
Chiropractic care works to help realign the joints. When joints are aligned properly and moving freely there is a decrease in the irritation, inflammation and protective spasm, reestablishing proper communication. A properly functioning nervous system means a better functioning immune system and a healthier you overall.
