Wilmington Thyroid Disease Helped With Chiropractic Therapy

There are two basic types of thyroid disease. If the gland is over-producing hormones, the condition is called hyperthyroidism. However, if the gland is under-producing hormones, that condition is called hypothyroidism. If you suffer from either disease in Wilmington thyroid conditions can be managed with chiropractic therapy.

One of the traditional therapies used to manage both conditions is oral medications. In the case of hypothyroidism, the drugs are intended to boost the missing hormones. As for hyperthyroidism, there are drugs designed to reduce the gland’s production. In other cases, one suffering from hyperthyroidism might also go under radiation or surgery.

The gland is located at the front of the neck, wrapping around the spine. It is responsible for regulating a wide variety of your body’s functions, from your brain to your immune system. Its location on the spine has invited greater scrutiny by chiropractors.

An underlying principle of all chiropractics is that an unaligned spine is the source of most bodily disease. The belief is that distortions in the spine can irritate the spinal nerves. This in turn, could affect the ability to produce hormone at appropriate levels.

The corollary to the unaligned spine theory is that the practitioner then works to realign the vertebrae. The intention here is that the body can work to heal itself from the ailments affecting it once the spinal column is functioning at its best. To this end, the chiropractor might use any one of a number of therapies.

While in the clinic, the patient will receive body work from the practitioner. This body work might include physical manipulation of the spine, muscles, and possibly the skull as well. Because of the location, chiropractors have started to bring their perspectives and therapies to help patients manage its malfunctioning. If you are suffering from one of these conditions, a Wilmington thyroid chiropractor might be able to offer some relief.
