Chiropractic and HIV

The goal of chiropractic care is to free patients from vertebral subluxations, a serious interference to life and health. Releasing subluxations permits the body to work more efficiently.
Research studies are increasingly revealing that the addressing of "subluxations" has a beneficial effect on many levels of one’s health.

The immune system function is one of the most exciting areas of study in chiropractic. More and more research is pointing to an immune system enhancing effect from spinal adjustments.

One study of the effects of specific upper cervical adjustments on the CD4 counts of HIV positive patients. Selano JL, HightowerBC, Pfleger B etal. Chiropratic Research Journal. 1994; 3(1): 32-39.

Five patients were adjusted and five were controls. After 6 months, in the control group (not under chiropractic care) the CD4 levels decreased by 7.96%. While the group receiving chiropractic adjustments experienced a 48% increase in CD4 cell count. This indicates that correction of vertebral subluxations enhance the immune system and healing ability of the human body.
