What Is an Autoimmune Disorder?
When a person is diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, a person’s immune system isn’t working as it should, with healthy body tissue mistakenly being destroyed by the immune system. Unfortunately, the underlying cause of this condition is generally unknown. Autoimmune disorders are very common. Currently, there are more than 80 autoimmune disorders. Some autoimmune disorders include fibromyalgia, lupus, graves disease, dermatomyositis, celiac disease, and Addison’s disease. Symptoms of an autoimmune disorder include joint pain, rash, general ill feeling, fatigue, and fever.
It can be quite the journey to a correct diagnosis. Patients with an accurate diagnosis can then seek appropriate treatment, such as chiropractic adjustments or therapeutic massage therapy.
The Benefits of Autoimmune Disorder Treatment
The central nervous system (CNS) is responsible for controlling the immune system. The CNS is made up of the brain and spinal cord. The spinal cord is considered a highway for communication to the brain and the various parts of the body.
Spinal subluxations can interrupt messages meant to be sent throughout the body. Chiropractic adjustments can realign the spine. This not only improves posture and reduces physical discomfort, but helps restore proper communication. Our patients often report a reduction in the frequency and severity of symptoms related to their autoimmune disorder.
