temperature, dry sparse hair, dry skin, weight gain despite loss of appetite, poor memory, low sex drive, slow pulse, low blood pressure, and menstrual irregularities, to name a few.

How Chiropractic Care Relates to Thyroid Disorders

Evidence supports that certain cases of thyroid disorders may result from the malfunction of nerves in the brain and spinal cord that control the thyroid’s production of thyroid hormone. Whether too little or too much thyroid hormone is produced, the abnormal level can be due to a malfunction between the brain, pituitary, spinal cord, and thyroid, as a result of spinal subluxations (spinal distortions that irritate nerves). Chiropractors help restore normal nerve function and communication, thereby allowing your body to work normally and naturally.
