Care for Autoimmune Disorders at The Wellness Connection

man and woman looking at paperworkAutoimmune disorders are complex conditions that occur when the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy cells, leading to inflammation and various symptoms. Traditional medical approaches often focus on managing symptoms with medications, but a growing number of individuals are turning to integrative healthcare practitioners, such as chiropractors and functional medicine practitioners, for a holistic approach to address the underlying causes of autoimmune disorders.

We’re proud to offer patients at The Wellness Connection a whole-body approach to healing through care for autoimmune disorders. Here’s how chiropractic and functional medicine could help you.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors specialize in maintaining the health of the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine. Research suggests a strong connection between the nervous system and the immune system, and chiropractic adjustments aim to optimize this connection. Misalignments in the spine, known as subluxations, may interfere with the proper functioning of the nervous system, potentially contributing to immune dysregulation.

At The Wellness Connection, we use spinal adjustments to correct these misalignments, promoting better nerve communication and overall bodily function. While chiropractic care doesn’t directly treat autoimmune disorders, it may play a supportive role in improving the body’s ability to self-regulate, potentially alleviating symptoms associated with autoimmune conditions.

Functional Medicine

Functional medicine takes a holistic approach to healthcare, focusing on identifying and addressing the root causes of health issues rather than merely treating symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners assess the patient’s overall health, including genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors, to create personalized treatment plans.

Our functional medicine team investigates factors such as diet, gut health, stress, and environmental exposures. We understand the intricate connections between these factors and the immune system, striving to rebalance the body and modulate immune responses through lifestyle interventions and nutritional support.

Combining Forces for Better Results

At The Wellness Connection, chiropractors and functional medicine practitioners often collaborate to provide comprehensive care for individuals with autoimmune disorders. Chiropractic adjustments may help enhance nerve function, while functional medicine addresses underlying triggers and imbalances. This integrative approach aims to not only manage symptoms but also promote overall wellness and improve the body’s resilience.

Nutritional Support

Functional medicine places a strong emphasis on the role of nutrition in promoting health. Many autoimmune disorders have links to inflammation and gut health. Depending on your unique needs and goals, we may recommend personalized dietary changes, including anti-inflammatory foods and supplements, to support the body’s natural healing processes.
