Chiropractic Adjustments Boost Immune Response


Exciting new research further validates that Chiropractic adjustments spike production

of specific immune cells in the human body.


A very recent study conducted at Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College supports this.

As part of the study 74 subjects without current symptoms or current chiropractic care

were selected and placed into three groups.

1) Venipuncture control

2) Chiropractic Adjustment without Cavitation (noise)

3) Chiropractic Adjustment with cavitation (noise produced when Dr. Colhoun performs an adjustment with his hands)


Blood samples were taken from all subjects @ three different intervals.

* Before intervention

* 20 min post treatment

* 2hrs post treatment

Samples were cultured in the laboratory and specific immune blood markers were accounted for.


Findings were remarkable showing significant elevation of Immunoglobulin G and Immunoglobulin M

in those test subjects who received a Chiropractic Adjustment with cavitation compared to the control



The role of these two antibodies is immense in the bodies natural ability to recognize and fight infection.

This is especially important during the cold and flu season.
