Newport Beach Chiropractor: Chiropractic for Allergies & Asthma
Posted Aug 02 2010 11:22am
In 2004, one of the most comprehensive study came out and was published in the Internet Journal of Orthopedic Surgery in regards with improving the immune system with Chiropractic Care, and manipulations of the vertebrae in the spine. This study showed between %72-%88 improvement in patients who had asthma and dermatitis (skin rashes) and got Corrective Chiropractic Therapies to their spines. According to this study, chronic spinal nerve compression specifically in the Thoracic Spine (midback region) can negatively effect your immune system. We often talk about the ‘kinks’ in the spine, these kinks can compress various nerves in the spinal chord and cause a variety of symptoms and diseases. Chiropractic care has been shown to help increase the immune system and remove these ‘kinks’ in the spine to let the nerve flow easily to those vital organs.
I often see this in practice- patients coming in with allergies, lower immune system resistance and asthma have an increased curve in their thoracic spine (a hunch back posture). This common poor posture can put pressure on the nerve exiting the spine and will cause all the symptoms named. Try Corrective Chiropractic Therapy if you or your loved ones are needlessly suffering. In Orange County, Wellness Choice Center is one of the very few wellness facilities that offers correction of the spine.
