Most people know that chiropractors help people with musculoskeletal conditions like neck pain, back pain, and headaches. What they may not know is that chiropractic care can give great benefit to a wide range of conditions. The neurospinal system includes the spinal column (vertebral bones), spinal cord, brain, and the spinal nerves that branch off the spinal cord to serve the muscles and organs of the body. Spinal pain is the most obvious symptom of neurospinal dysfunction. Other secondary conditions due to neurospinal dysfunction are less obvious, even to health care professionals. Last month, I found a presentation that compiled research on the outcomes of treating the neurospinal system. Some of the noted benefits of chiropractic care include:

  • Enhanced immune system function
  • Reduced stress hormone (cortisol)
  • Positive changes in total cholesterol, LDL, and triglycerides
  • Normalized blood pressure
  • Improvements in heart rhythm disorders
  • Faster healing of duodenal ulcers
  • Increased lung capacity
  • More agility, balance, power, speed, and reaction time in athletes
  • Higher cognitive function, in terms of attention, memory, and information processing

The benefits of a healthy neurospinal system include decreased back pain and neck pain, but also unexpected benefits related to heart and lung function, immune system, digestion, athletic performance, and mental function. Chiropractic treatment affects the entire neurospinal system. This is why the chiropractic connection to health is so widespread.
