Psychoneuroimmunology is the interdisciplinary field that explores the connections between the mind and emotions, the brain and central nervous system, and the immune system. Chiropractic is a non-surgical, drugless form of health care that seeks to optimize health and wellness via the relationship between structure, primarily the spine, and function, primarily the nervous system of the human body. In practice, most chiropractors also emphasize the role of diet, exercise, and lifestyle modification as an adjunct to the healing process. As such, chiropractic is well positioned to make a unique contribution to the field of psychoneuroimmunology.
Key Words: chiropractic, psychoneuroimmunology, mind-body, health, stress
