Autoimmune Disease and Chiropractic Management

The nervous system helps regulate the body’s immunity. Any dysfunction can initiate or aggravate issues associated with autoimmune disease. Chiropractic medicine focuses on the body’s ability to heal itself. These natural abilities function optimally when the body, and the nervous system, are well-balanced. Total body homeostasis elevates:
  • Mood
  • Immunity
  • Overall health
  • Quality of life

Autoimmune Disease

The immune system goes after any foreign bodies that the body comes in contact with to combat/prevent illness and disease. This could be:
  • Bacteria
  • Cancer cells
  • Viruses
 
However, the system can over-activate and start attacking its own cells and organs. This can manifest as an autoimmune disease. The type of disease depends on the specific area of the body that is being attacked. Common autoimmune diseases include:
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Lupus
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Psoriasis
 
A chiropractic approach to addressing autoimmune disease will usually begin with stress reduction. Therapies include:
  • Chiropractic adjustments to get the body balanced
  • Massage to loosen and relax the body’s tissues
  • Meditation to help manage stress, learn strategies of healthy coping
  • Yoga to keep the body limber
  • Exercise to strengthen the body inside and out
  • Diet to help with gut health and inflammation

The Nervous System and Immunity

The nervous system has a significant role in the body’s immunity. The system transmits signals when to battle illness when to engage in the healing process, and so on. If the nerve’s path is compromised it can interfere with the brain’s ability to properly function and regulate immunity. This can lead to an underactive or overactive immune system that translates into an autoimmune disease. Proper spinal alignment is vital for maintaining optimal nervous system function. When the spine is out of alignment/balance, the communication highway/s are inhibited, deteriorating the body’s health and neural tissue response. Spinal misalignment restoration is a chiropractic specialty that will increase the body’s natural healing power and promote whole-body balance. The nerve circulation is optimized and can properly communicate without sending improper/damaged signals.

Chiropractic

Any type of misalignment can be overlooked as a cause for body dysfunction. Chiropractic is about naturally sustained spinal and whole-body health. It will optimize the body to manage the disease and possibly reverse it. Injury Medical and Functional Chiropractic Clinic can offer a variety of customized treatment plans to achieve optimal health and maximum quality of life.
