The advances in medical science have made it so much easier for researchers to find out new discoveries about how the body functions and see things that were never before able to be observed. Some of these advances have become the source of a new study that is causing much discussion in the medical community.
Recent research done in June of 2015 has pointed out some interesting facts. It seems as if the immune system is connected to the advancement of a number of degenerative neurological diseases such as:
- Multiple sclerosis
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Parkinson’s disease
Excessive inflammation seems to be the key to an immune system response that is causing these conditions to get out of control. This type of inflammation comes from the lymphatic system and can even impact conditions such as diabetes.
Upper cervical chiropractors use an alternative approach when it comes to caring for neurological conditions. We use a natural method to gently realign the bones of the upper cervical spine, particularly the C1 and C2 vertebrae. In this way, the immune system can work at its optimum to keep inflammation at bay. Our methods also help increase central nervous system function, so that the two can work in harmony.
How Upper Cervical Care Helps with Immune System Function
It has been seen that a misaligned atlas (C1) can cause blood flow to and from the brain to be restricted. Cerebrospinal fluid flow can also be hindered, causing pressure to build up as an end result. This stops the brain from being able to rid itself of dangerous toxins and can bring about neurological function. An upright MRI has been used to see how a misalignment causes these issues in patients who have endured head or neck trauma.
When we correct the misalignment, we help the body to restore the proper flow of blood and cerebrospinal fluid and, in turn, restore the normal function of the immune system and central nervous system. This can result in the improvement of neurological function, thereby putting an end to the progression of the resulting conditions.
