Understanding Influenza

How does your back affect your immune system and its ability to fight off the flu or other colds? As you’ll see, there’s a whole lot more to the story.

Let’s take a brief look at the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918. This pandemic claimed somewhere between 20-100 million lives, a huge mind-blowing number. An interesting little-known fact is that this pandemic may have saved Chiropractic as a profession and in fact, saved several thousand American Lives.

Statistics show that in Iowa 1 out of 15 people under traditional medical care lost their lives, while the rate of lost lives of those under Chiropractic care and other manual therapies was 1 out of every 789 people. “In Davenport Iowa, 50 medical doctors treated 4,953 cases, with 274 deaths. In the same city, 150 Chiropractors including students and faculty of the Palmer School of Chiropractic treated 1,635 cases with only one death.

“National figures show that 1,142 Chiropractors treated 46,394 patients for influenza during 1918, with a loss of 54 patients – one out of every 886.”
