Anyone with allergies knows how terrible they can be. At best, they’re a nuisance that comes around once or so a year. At worst, they’re something that can lead to serious reactions that require immediate attention.

You might not think that allergies can be resolved or relieved through working with a chiropractor, but many people have found this to be a successful form of treatment. Chiropractors are trained in dealing with a number of types of negative health symptoms, and with the proper alignment and treatment plan, you could experience a vast difference in how your allergies affect you.

Allergies are hyperactive immune responses to substances that either enter or come in contact with the body. A substance that causes an allergic reaction is called an allergen, and can be found in food, drinks, or the environment. It can be something as simple as pet dander, pollen, or bee venom. If your immune system is overactive, your body will react to allergens similar to how it would treat a harmful substance. This overreaction is what causes common allergy symptoms like wheezing, itchy eyes and hives.

HOW CHIROPRACTIC CARE CAN HELP:

Your immune system is controlled and regulated by your brain, spinal cord and the nerves throughout the body. Since allergies are caused by an overactive immune system and added stress, improper spinal position, irritated nerves and poor lifestyle factors all contribute to an exaggerated immune system response, allergies can be helped by calming the immune system’s response. Chiropractic care can provide all the building blocks for optimizing and maintaining a healthy immune system throughout life.
