Spring is in the air and that means pollen is, too! Many people don’t realize it, but there are plenty of allergy sufferers out there who have found relief with chiropractic care. To put it simply, allergies are an exaggerated response of the immune system and with chiropractic care, your immune system will be strong. Although chiropractic isn’t exactly an allergy treatment, it is a natural method of healing that can help ease your allergy issues.
Traditional Allergy Treatments
If you’e suffered from seasonal allergies, you’ve probably taken a daily allergy pill, nasal spray, or other over-the-counter medicine. While these issues can help provide relief, they don’t actually treat the underlying issues. One of the benefits of chiropractic care is that is treats the root of the problem, not just the symptoms, including allergy issues.
How Chiropractic Helps
Chiropractic adjustments and treatments release pressure that is put on the nervous system, allowing the immune system to work effectively and efficiently. Both the respiratory system and the immune system rely on proper communication between the brain and spinal cord to coordinate and control their functions. If there is an interruption in that communication (i.e. a misalignment), the immune system may become compromised. Chiropractic adjustments realign the spine, thus opening the pathways of communication between the spine and brain and allowing the body to heal itself. Chiropractic is a painless, natural approach to treat allergies that allows the body to function properly.
Additionally, chiropractic care also helps regulate cortisol levels, which is important for allergy sufferers. Many individuals that suffer from allergies also have weak adrenal gland function, and spinal misalignments can effect allergic reactions.
