For those who are seeking methods to strengthen their immune system, there is plenty of evidence to support the role of chiropractic. The New York Preventive Medicine Institute at New York University conducted a study that verified the positive effects of chiropractic on the immune system. The three year study of 107 individuals who had been under care for five years were compared with members of the general population. The study revealed that the chiropractic group exhibited a 200% greater immune competence than the non-chiropractic group. In addition, it was also determined that the chiropractic group had a 400% greater immune response than the group which suffered with various cancer diagnoses.
CHIROPRACTIC SUPPORTS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Dr. Ronald Pero, the chief of cancer prevention at the institution and leader of the study stated, “ When applied in a clinical framework, I have never seen a group other than this chiropractic group to experience a 200% increase over the normal patients. This is why it is so dramatically important. We have never seen such a positive improvement in a group.”
Another study from Patricia Brennan PH.D found that chiropractic patients exhibited an improved immune response immediately after treatment. The study specifically demonstrated the ‘phagocytic respiratory burst of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) and monocytes were enhanced in adults that had been adjusted by chiropractors”.
NERVOUS AND ENDOCRINE SYSTEM ARE CONNECTED
This immediate upsurge in immune response is really not surprising considering the the direct connection between the nervous and endocrine systems. Chiropractic adjustments restore the mechanical function of the spinal bones that protect the emerging nerve roots from damaging compressive forces.
