How Chiropractic Service Can Boost the Immune System
Chiropractic services refers to a variety of techniques within chiropractic medicine like massage, spinal manipulation, and exercises. While most people go to a chiropractor for chronic pain, there are a variety of other complaints that we at Kian Chiropractic Care in Irvine, CA, may be able to address. For example, the immune system and nervous system are inherently linked, so a good chiropractic visit boosts immune system functioning in the body.
How the Nervous System and Immune System Work Together
A study found that the nervous system and immune system may be even more intertwined than previously thought. This may be a clue that it could be possible to use the nervous system to improve the immune response in general, as well as chronic issues related to the immune system such as arthritis.
The central nervous and immune systems are both designed to protect you from harm, so it makes sense that they communicate extensively with each other to ensure your body stays healthy.
How a Chiropractor Boosts Immune System Function
There are little messenger molecules that aid in the communication between the immune, endocrine, and nervous systems. One of these messenger molecules, IL-2, was principally thought of as a messenger for the immune system, but in recent studies have shown that it appears in the nervous system as well. Due to this, researchers believe that conditions that negatively affect neural function, like spinal misalignment, may stress the immune and endocrine systems on top of the nervous system with IL-2 passing the distress signal along. Correcting the source of that stress by re-aligning the spine or otherwise putting the body back in sync could prevent the stressing of the immune and endocrine systems.
