CC Newsletter April Website Banner


Chiropractic care is not only a solution for aches and pains, but also a wellness tool that helps to optimize the way your body operates and feels. Research has emerged in recent years that there is a strong connection between chiropractic adjustments and its effects on building a stronger immune system. Having a healthy immune system has many benefits:

  • Increased ability to fight off bacteria and viruses.
  • The ability to recover properly and fully from sicknesses.
  • The ability to heal properly from injuries.
  • The potential to get sick less frequently.
  • The potential to get through sicknesses faster.

Simply put, a strong immune system allows your body to release antibodies effectively and quickly. Our immune systems sometimes become compromised due to a range of factors. Some people spend years trying to find out why they are living with reduced or compromised immune systems without answers. However, many people are finding a way to boost their immune systems by putting together some missing pieces of the puzzle using chiropractic care.

CC AdjustmentHow Chiropractic Care Can Support the Immune System

Most people have lots of questions when they hear that someone they know has been able to successfully treat an immune-response issue using chiropractic care. Let me answer some of these questions by providing a holistic understanding of how the body functions. The reasoning behind why we often see success in boosting the immune system through chiropractic adjustments involves the role of your nervous system in your body’s ability to fight off illness.

Any type of “dysfunction” in the body can throw off your immune system. Many times, a subluxation in your spine is the cause of a serious dysfunction within your central nervous system. A subluxation is what’s known as a slight misalignment within the vertebrae. Unfortunately, subluxations are rarely considered or detected when exploring issues like pain, chronic illness, mood concerns or reduced immune response. However, many people make the connection between physical symptoms and the presence of a subluxation once they feel the effects of a chiropractic adjustment.

Spinal misalignment contributes to a reduced immune response; a block in the nervous system prevents blood flow and nutrient spread, and compromises overall bodily performance and function. Being in a constant state of stress stemming from discomfort, imbalance or pressure in the body can potentially make a person more susceptible to a variety of illnesses and diseases, affecting your quality of life.

What Steps You Can Take for a Healthier You

CC Adjustment2Understanding the link between issues with your immune system and a potential “block” or misalignment within your spine or nervous system is the first step. The chiropractors at Cornerstone Chiropractic understand exactly how to detect potential sources of misalignment within your spine, and additional issues that could be occurring in other parts of your body.

We will explore a treatment plan once it has been determined that a misalignment or imbalance of some kind could be behind tension, pain or immune issues that you’ve been experiencing. Treatment typically involves very strategic manipulation that allows a chiropractor to manually realign vertebra. Additional tools of chiropractic care, such as massage or imaging resources, can also help provide holistic, comprehensive support for managing underlying issues.

We can also suggest some home exercises that you will want to incorporate that will allow you to boost your immune system between visits. This can help create a more positive outcome. In addition, we can discuss some general lifestyle and dietary habits that may help to amplify the work that is being done during each chiropractic visit such as nutrition, natural supplements, and daily movement & exercise.

Massage and Chiropractic Care

Massage and chiropractic care can enhance your health, wellness, emotional well-being and physical functionality. A therapeutic massage in addition to targeted chiropractic treatment will considerably help reduce stress levels.

Massage helps loosen ligaments and tendons that can make the joints stiff and painful. This reduces overall muscle soreness, and helps improve circulation throughout the body. Chiropractic adjustments help ensure proper function of the joints and reduce inflammation and pain around the joint. Massage is a great way of alleviating bodily pain while chiropractic care targets the source of the pain.
