RCC Research Bulletin: Spinal manipulation and the immune system

A new RCC research bulletin, available here, explains that:

  • There are no clinical trials of the effectiveness of SMT on enhancing immunity to infectious diseases
  • A few published studies report cellular/molecular responses to SMT in vitro, however these are contradictory and offer no evidence of an overall likely pro-immune, clinically-relevant effect in patients
  • There has been no systematic appraisal of the quality of the studies in this field
  • There is no evidence enabling claims to be made for effectiveness of spinal manipulation on immunity
