Spring is in the air and that means allergens are, too! Many people don't know it, but there is a large population of allergy sufferers who have benefited from receiving chiropractic care. Allergies are an exaggerated response of the immune system from anything that your body does not recognize as something that should be in your body. Although chiropractic is not specifically an allergy treatment, it is a natural method of healing that will help your body function at its optimal level, something that is vital for those that suffer from allergies!
Common Allergy Treatments
Most people who have allergies take a daily allergy pill or nasal spray. But those options don't offer a cure, they simply treat the symptoms and not the underlying issues. You may be unaware, but there are benefits that are a direct result of chiropractic care for allergies.
How Chiropractic Helps
Chiropractic care and adjustments release pressure that is on the nervous system that allows the immune system to work efficiently. Both the respiratory system and the immune system rely on proper communication between the spinal cord and the brain to control and coordinate their functions. If there is an interruption in that communication system (like a misalignment), this may lead to the immune system becoming compromised. Chiropractic care realigns the spine which opens the necessary pathways of communication between the spine and the brain that allows your body to heal itself. Chiropractic care is the a natural and holistic approach to allergy treatment; it allows your body to do what it was designed to do.
Not only does chiropractic care support a strong immune system, it also helps regulate cortisol levels, which is particularly important during high allergy season. Many individuals suffering from allergies also have weak adrenal gland function. Most don't realize that spinal misalignments can actually impact allergic reactions. Who knew that chiropractors can help people suffering from allergies find relief?
