Chiropractic Helps With Inflammation

What is the connection between the spine and inflammation?

The nervous system coordinates the body’s functions and maintains overall health. The spine is the communication pathway for nerve impulses and the messages that keep your body working. Spinal misalignments known as subluxations disrupt the internal flow of your body’s communication network. This interference may compromise the body’s ability to regulate inflammation, leading to an increased inflammatory response.

A chiropractic adjustment addresses vertebral subluxations and restores ideal alignment to the spine, thereby improving nervous system function. A higher functioning nervous system and healthy spine is equipped to better regulate the inflammatory response, as well as hormonal responses in the body. When the body is able to better adapt and regulate, there will be a natural reduction in the production of inflammatory agents in the body. Cytokines, proteins that regulate the cells of the immune system, if allowed to build up can cause a severe inflammatory response.

Research studies show that a program of regular chiropractic care can reduce the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines. When nerve stress is reduced and nerve communication id optimized, the body is able to adapt, detect and heal more efficiently. For this reason, chiropractic care is known as an effective way to stay active and keep joint functioning at their best.
