Chiropractic Care for Autoimmune Disease Management

Seeking chiropractic care to holistically manage chronic disease is a great option for supporting the body’s natural healing abilities and function. One category of disease that can often be well managed with lifestyle changes and holistic support (such as chiropractic care) is autoimmune disease. By focusing on the health of the nervous system, the lifeforce for all bodily function, your body can find balance and reach its full potential. When you are in a state of homeostasis, you can gain a lot of potential benefits, such as improved mood, a stronger immune system, and better overall health.

What Causes Autoimmune Disease?

The exact cause of autoimmunity remains unknown. However, there are some theories related to triggers, such as exposure to certain microorganisms (bacteria or viruses), drugs, or toxins that lead to autoimmune disease. What type of autoimmune disease is triggered is dependent on which area of the body is affected. Common types include lupus, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome and psoriasis.

Regardless of the cause or trigger, the immune system is essentially in overdrive. This leads to an attack on the body’s own healthy cells. This leads to inflammation, pain, and an overall loss of normal function. Any autoimmune disease can typically be well managed with adequate support, via medications and lifestyle modification, to prevent unnecessary suffering and progression.

How Spine Misalignment Can Affect Your Immune System

The immune system is intricately designed to screen, detect, and attack any foreign invaders that you may come in contact with. One of the key supporting systems for your immunity is the nervous system. The communication highway that the nerves provide helps coordinate immune function and keep everything running as smoothly as possible. Thus, a breakdown in this communication can quickly lead to aggravated autoimmunity symptoms.

Optimal spine alignment is key for keeping the lines of communication in the nervous system open and optimized. Often, your spine becomes misaligned without even realizing it. The subtle changes that can occur are best assessed by a spine professional, such as a chiropractor. Plus, finding a provider certified in Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP), a specialized research oriented approach to spine alignment care, can potentially take your holistic health support to the next level.

Manage Your Autoimmune Disease Holistically

When spine misalignment is addressed, nerve integrity and flow can be restored. This allows your body to direct its energy to where it’s needed most for preventing and managing your symptoms associated with autoimmune disease. Combining this effective treatment option with other lifestyle modifications like reducing toxin exposure, stress management, and proper nutrition can help you feel your best despite chronic disease.
