Did you know that chiropractic is not just for relief from back pain? In fact, exciting new research reveals that chiropractic is an effective treatment for a wide variety of disorders — from joint pain to constipation to infertility. For instance, one study found that chiropractic care was superior to traditional ultrasound therapy in treating sprained ankles. Other studies have found chiropractic to be more effective than traditional treatments for knee pain, carpal tunnel syndrome and elbow pain.
Scientific research also indicates that chiropractic care improves the immune response, which may lead to superior health overall. One study looked at the effect of chiropractic care on white blood cells associated with immune function. The study revealed that these white blood cells (pholymorphnulcear neutrophils (PMN) and monocytes) were “enhanced in adults that had been adjusted by chiropractors.”
