Chiropractic’s Greatest Benefit: Reducing Inflammation

Inflammation is at the root of so many problems in modern life

At some point in the last two decades, inflammation burst onto the scene and gained notoriety for its role in countless conditions. While inflammation in itself is not bad, it becomes problematic when it becomes chronic. Chronic inflammation occurs when your body doubles down on the inflammatory response- creating inflammation in response to the inflammation that already exists. Other types of chronic inflammation include:

  • The body’s inability to deal with acute inflammation
  • Autoimmune disorders that mistake healthy tissues for pathogens and compensate accordingly 

As the inflammation piles on, quality of life goes down. So how can chiropractic help extricate you from this vicious cycle? Read on to find out. 


Chiropractic versus inflammation

Studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments are implicated in the reduction of two inflammatory markers known as cytokines. This is a good indicator that chiropractic adjustment helps directly reduce systemic inflammation. When you combine this with certain lifestyle adjustments, such as changing your diet, drinking more water, resting appropriately and exercising more, you can effect powerful changes in the way inflammation affects your life.
