Let’s just be absolutely clear here: chiropractic adjustments DO NOT help with your risk of getting COVID-19.
There’s NO reasonable research to support that chiropractic adjustments boost your immunity. Okay?
There are chiropractors making claims on social media that adjustments can help boost your immunity. Here is what the the latest research says:
“Although it has been demonstrated that spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) provides short-term benefits across different spinal musculoskeletal disorders, the available evidence supporting the capacity of SMT to trigger a significant immune-endocrine response is mixed and its clinical relevance remains to be established”
Meaning … yes, you may see some sort of activation of the immune-endocrine system.
No, it is not established that the activation is enough to “boost” your immune function, okay?
If you have a sore neck or back pain, by all means go for a chiropractic adjustments. While the results may be short-lived, at least you do experience an improvement in your symptoms.
Choose wisely. Choose an evidence-based chiropractor!
