According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, there are over 100 different classifications of autoimmune diseases. From rheumatoid arthritis to dermatomyositis, there are countless diseases in the world out to attack your body. Your immune system protects you from outside pathogens. But if you have an autoimmune disorder, your body’s defense system turns against itself. Fortunately, non-invasive autoimmune treatments in Pompano, FL, are available from Dr. Jason Cheshire at Lighthouse Medical Center to help correct your immune system.
Autoimmune Treatments and Chiropractic
Chiropractors treat the immune system by unlocking the body's natural healing capabilities. Chiropractic care focuses on the spine, which envelops the central nervous system. When there is a misalignment in the spine, or subluxation, it puts added pressure on nerves. The result is a disruption in the way the brain communicates with the body. These dysfunctions hurt the immune system's ability to fight off infection and disease.
How Chiropractors Help Treat the Immune System
Chiropractors like Dr. Cheshire use autoimmune treatments in Pompano, FL, such as spinal manipulation to put joints back in their proper position. Also known as a chiropractic adjustment, the technique restores the natural curvature of the vertebrae and enhances the way the central nervous system functions. This restored function improves communications between the brain and the body.
Aside from improving the immune system, chiropractic adjustments also provide an array of benefits for mental and physical health. Benefits include:
- Inflammation reduction in tissues and joints
- Reduces many types of back pain and discomfort
- Enhances organ function
- Boosts range of motion and flexibility
- Helps calm hyperactivity
- Improves the body's recovery process
- Boosts athletic performance
Many patients report finding relief from a wide range of musculoskeletal issues when traditional treatments like medication and surgery didn't work. Many experts note that medications can have a detrimental effect on a patient's immune system. Since chiropractic care focuses on the body's natural ability to heal itself, many patients no longer need to rely on medications.
