Autoimmune Support

Autoimmune diseases are those where the immune system attacks the body. These conditions include such diseases as Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sjogren’s, Celiac Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and Multiple Sclerosis. There are approximately eighty diseases that fall within this classification.

Chiropractic care works to balance the body. When you can balance your musculoskeletal and nervous systems, you balance your immune system as well. Since the central nervous system controls autoimmune response, it is important to balance that area as well.

With autoimmune diseases, the immune system attacks healthy tissue. This weakens the systems and sometimes makes you sick. The symptoms of autoimmune diseases can be quite painful. Chiropractic care can help your body work better and help you feel better.
