Improving Autoimmune Conditions with Routine Chiropractic Care
According to the American Autoimmune and Related Diseases Association (AARDA), about 50 million Americans—roughly one in every five citizens—suffers from some type of autoimmune disorder. This can be something as simple as a food allergy or basic eczema, to a condition as disruptive and debilitating as rheumatoid arthritis or multiple sclerosis (MS). The case with all autoimmune disorders is the same, however: the body is attacking itself.
For most autoimmune disorders the treatment plan is sparse: usually medicating and making lifestyle changes to lessen or deter symptoms from arising. But, for chronic sufferers of an autoimmune disorder, this often isn’t enough. The symptoms still persist, medication is expensive, and their quality of life continues to decline as their body battles itself.
What can be done for a disease for which there is no known cure? Palliative care is always an answer, but for many, routine chiropractic visits are becoming an appealing option as well.
How can chiropractic adjustments help?
Your spine is the gateway for your central nervous system—all nerve pathways connecting your body flow through it. This is important to remember because it means your spine has a direct stake in the health and wellness of all connected muscle groups, tissues, and organs.
For someone suffering from an autoimmune disorder, optimal responsiveness and health from your central nervous system is important. When your nerves are able to communicate seamlessly and healthfully with the rest of your body, your body is going to be able to function at a higher level with less hindrance, to its fullest potential. In short, this means giving yourself a fighting chance at living to the highest level of quality.
Chiropractic adjustments are designed to restore your spine to its optimal curvature and position, meaning correcting any nerve impediments that may be occurring as the result of spinal misalignment. When a chiropractor adjusts your spine, they’re working to restore full operation to your body’s numerous nerve pathways.
All of this tumbles into a domino effect for better wellness. Better spinal health means better nerve communication, which means better organ, tissue, and muscle function, which means giving your body the best chance to fend off the symptoms of an autoimmune disorder!
While some medications may help improve your prospect of living with an autoimmune disorder, it’s important to think about what needs to be changed fundamentally to give your body a fighting chance against fending off, well, itself! This means making literal adjustments to promote a new standard for quality. All of this starts with the spinal and proper spinal health.

Chiropractic BioPhysics, or CBP, is one of the most scientific, researched, and results-oriented corrective care techniques. CBP-trained chiropractors aim to realign the spine back to health, eliminating nerve interference, and addressing the source of pain, fatigue, and disease. As with all chiropractic care, CBP is gentle, painless and non-invasive.
