In this weeks video health tip, Dr. Samir Hajariwala, director of Crossroads Chiropractic, takes a look at the effect spinal manipulation therapy has on your immune system.
Inflammation is the normal response of your body’s immune system to injuries and harmful things that enter your body.
Immune cells quickly react to the damaged area to fix the problem.
To communicate, your immune cells use cytokines, which are a group of proteins secreted by cells of the immune system that act as chemical messengers.
The main role of cytokines is to help regulate the immune response.
A lower back pain study published in The Clinical Research of Pain found that spinal manipulation therapy contributed to positive changes in patients’ symptoms (inflammation, pain, etc.) by making changes in cytokine levels.
Keep your immune system healthy with a nutritious diet, regular exercise, quality sleep, a positive attitude and regular chiropractic care.
