Chiropractic Reduces InflammationPortland Chiropractic and Inflammation
Inflammation has a huge effect on our health. We have seen many cases over the years in our Portland office, and the science backs up. Chronic inflammation has been linked to heart disease, reduced immune functioning, IBS, arthritis, cancer, weight gain, and depression.
Fortunately, many studies have found that chiropractic has a positive effect on inflammation, offering health benefits beside pain relief.
Portland Chiropractor Helps Lower Your Inflammation Levels
Basically, when you engage in regular chiropractic care, your central nervous system is able to pass messages effectively between your brain and your immune system, causing it to function optimally and helping prevent a lot of pain-related issues to begin with.
However, should inflammation develop, your body naturally raises the levels of certain anti-inflammatory agents after receiving chiropractic adjustments, essentially helping it to effectively heal on its own.
Drug-Free Inflammation Relief
This means that you'll begin to feel better without having to take any types of drugs or other unnatural substances to rid your body of inflammation. Ultimately, chiropractic reduces inflammation and increases healing.
