Chronic Inflammatory Response Balance Restored with Chiropractic

Share
The body’s inflammatory response is a chemical one. It happens when the body’s tissues are damaged/injured from:
  • Bacteria
  • Trauma
  • Toxins
  • Heat
The damaged cells release different chemicals that include:
These chemicals cause the blood vessels to leak out into the tissues and cause swelling. Redness, swelling, and warmth/heat connected to an inflammatory response are secondary symptoms brought on from an increased blood flow that mobilizes the cells to the specific area to engage the healing process from illness or injury. This process is vital in maintaining the body’s optimal health. The inflammatory response can become debilitating when it becomes chronic and leads to the onset or aggravation of a condition or disease. Chiropractic treatment will restore the body’s balance and reduce inflammation.

Inflammatory Response Causes

There are different causes for the body activating a full inflammatory response. When inflammation is caused by an acute injury, virus, or bacterial infection, inflammation is necessary to help restore the body�s homeostasis. Conversely, chronic inflammation leaves the body in a state of stress and imbalance. This depletes energy reserves making it impossible for the body to properly rejuvenate. Common causes of chronic inflammatory response include:
  • Chronic stress/anxiety
  • Poor sleep
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Being overweight
  • Chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes
  • Sensitivity to chemicals, environmental triggers, foods
  • Autoimmune diseases

Inflammation Reduction

While inflammation is necessary for proper body health, knowing how to manage symptoms can help reduce unnecessary pain. Inflammation can be reduced by:
  • A nutrient-rich diet that focuses on fruits and vegetables
  • Reducing processed foods specifically sugars
  • Avoiding common food allergens like gluten and dairy products
  • Weight loss
  • Sleep hygiene
  • Regular physical activity
  • Stress management
  • Body balance

Spinal Alignment

The nervous system plays a significant role in inflammatory response management. The system coordinates proper cellular processes and signals. It also helps with body regulation and restoration when inflammation is no longer needed. A spinal misalignment can throw the entire process into chaos and be an underlying cause that contributes to chronic inflammation. Spinal misalignments block vital nerve energy that helps the body self-regulate. With chiropractic nerve circulation is restored allowing the body to properly and optimally coordinate necessary functions.

Chiropractic Balance

Chiropractic is a science-oriented branch of medical care that focuses on optimizing spinal alignment. Addressing the root issue of spinal alignment will help restore the balance and energy needed to regulate the inflammatory response.
