Chiropractic adjustments are great for a wide range of Neuro-Muscular-Skeletal disorders, but many don’t know that chiropractic adjustments help to increase and stimulate the immune system. Studies have shown that those who are adjusted are sick less and improve quicker when faced with an illness.
All the media coverage of the COVID-19 epidemic has led to some people overreacting and are unnecessarily worried. Take steps now to make sure your nervous and immune system are functioning at 100%.
A study evaluated the effects of adjustments on HIV+ patients and their blood work. Over a 6 month period that adjusted group had a 48% increase in their CD4 cells compared to the control group. See the link below for the study.
Another study found that a group of patients had their white blood cells and immune cells increased after a chiropractic adjustment with either manual or instrument adjustments.
