Chiropractic Can help with Immunity?!  How Does that Work?

The truth is, we are not completely sure of the mechanism that occurs to increase the immune response after a chiropractic manipulation.  There has been research showing that an increase in immune cells does occur after an adjustment however.  In a recent presentation made by Jack Neil of the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic at the 9th Chiropractic, Osteopathy, and Physiotherapy Annual Conference in the UK,  Neil confirmed that spinal adjustments are associated with a central anti-inflammatory response.  These positive immune response changes may explain why chiropractic can reduce pain and inflammation and pain, seems to help with chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, and statistics show a decrease in negative health conditions that occur in patients seeing a chiropractor regularly.
