Inflammation is the normal response to physical emotional or infectious stress in the body. It is an essential mechanism by which the body heals itself. Under healthy conditions when the stress is removed inflammation returns to normal levels. Recent evidence in neuroscience has shown that sustained inflammation can have negative effects on the body including headache, fatigue, insomnia, loss of appetite and body weight. Studies have even implicated inflammation in the development of conditions such as Depression, Chronic Fatigue and Alzheimer's disease. The Chiropractic adjustment has been shown to decrease inflammation in the body. This is why our patients often report improvement in energy and an increase quality of life with ongoing chiropractic adjustments. If you feel run down, not firing on all cylinders it could be due to systemic inflammation. Get your spine checked, get adjusted and regain a good quality of life.
