Chiropractic Evidence Continues to Expand
Medical research recently established evidence of the serious disease implications that exist because of the connection between the central nervous system and the immune system. Chiropractors began speaking on this topic and directly influencing the connection between the central nervous system, immune system, and spinal system since 1895. The medical community publicly revealed an evidence-based connection between the central nervous system and the immune system in 2015. Significant health-altering implications continue to gain traction with each new study.
“I really did not believe there were structures in the body that we were not aware of. I thought the body was mapped. How these vessels could have escaped detection when the lymphatic system has been so thoroughly mapped throughout the body is surprising on its own.” – Jonathan Kipnis, Department of Neuroscience and director of the University Center for Brain Immunology and Glia
Kipnis states his amazement in the fact that the best medical science and research in the world just recently made this connection. The greatest minds and technology in medical research and healthcare lead many to believe that the human body exists no longer bears any mystery in terms of development and function. Experts using the most sophisticated technology and endless resources still find it hard to believe that discoveries still evade mainstream healthcare and understanding. Science in all forms faced this challenge dating back hundreds of years. The health community must continually explore the unknown and misunderstood aspects of the human body in pursuit of achieving better health from within the structure and function of the body.
Chiropractors view and approach health much differently than medical doctors and the medical model of care. Chiropractic starts with the premise that the body is programmed for health and owns an inborn, innate intelligence stronger and more sophisticated than the best doctor, surgery, drug, or procedure. Because the central nervous system directs and controls all function, health must consist of keeping a balanced and healthy nervous system free from any interference. The spine maintains an intimate relationship with all body functions through the brain and central nervous system. A key component to achieving optimum health and performance must consist of addressing the spine. Chiropractors achieve unique and transformational results with patients by addressing the connection between the spine, central nervous system, and all other systems of the body, including the immune system.
Science continues to study and discover more amazing features of human health. One constant always remains the same; all healing occurs through the function of the central nervous system. Research proves that the alignment and health of the spine directs the function of the central nervous system. Acquiring and maintaining health in the spine influences so much more than back or neck pain. Scientifically proven Chiropractic adjustments help improve all function and performance. Many people do not fully understand the significance and power of Chiropractic care, but continuing education and research may very well determine that the textbooks of previous ideologies need to be rewritten for generations to come.
