How Chiropractic Care Can Boost The Immune System

We have seen many of our own patients receive a great boost to the immune system response. Things like shorts colds and even reduced the amount of colds. Chiropractic care allows the spine to work properly and send the correct “signals” to all other parts of the body.

“What does this mean for me?” Your body begins working the way it is intended to as subluxations are decreased. The signals can pass freely through the spinal cord, carrying proper signals to the rest of the body. This allows the autonomic nervous system to communicate better and produces what we call an immune system boost.

Improved Immune System Response From Chiropractic Care

Video Transcription: Dr. Nate DeJong Speaking

Hey Guys, Dr. nate here from Highest Health Chiropractic in Sioux Falls South Dakota.
Today we are going to talk about Chiropractic and the Immune System.

So I just wanted to share real quick wit you guys a really cool statistical study that was done a long time ago.

So way back in the year 1918, that was the last time we had a Flu pandemic in the UNited States. They kept stats in the state of Iowa, – why the state of iowa?
The state of iowa is where Palmer Chiropractic college was at the time
Which was actually the only chiropractic college in the world

That is probably the most densely populated area with chiropractors at that time.
But the stats that they kept were,

With the flu that year, that killed millions of people world wide, tens of thousands of people were dying in the united States,
What they found out  was, if a person in the State of Iowa  sought medical treatment for the flu, they had a 1 in 15 chance of death.
If they went to a chiropractor instead, they had a 1 in over 760 chance of death.

Sot the chance of dying from the flu, if you got chiropractic care, decreased significantly just purely by going to get adjusted.
Now, why does that happen?

Because when you get adjusted it will actually bolster the immune response, it helps your immune system function better. As everyone knows with viral infections , by and large, you are just going to have to wait that out and let the body deal with it on its own.

Well if we can help the immune system function better, help the body function better, we are going to be able to have a lot higher chance for our body to successfully fight off that sickness.

The findings back in 1918, still holds true today: Chiropractic Help Boost Immune System Function.
