Spring is in the air and that unfortunately means allergens are, too. Many people aren’t aware, but there is a large population of allergy sufferers who have greatly benefited from regular chiropractic adjustments. Allergies are essentially an exaggerated response of the immune system from anything that the body doesn’t recognize as something that should be there. Although chiropractic isn’t specifically an allergy treatment, it is a natural healing method that helps your body function as it should, which is vital for those that suffer from seasonal allergies.
If you are like most allergy sufferers, you probably take a daily pill or nasal spray. While those options can certainly help with symptoms, they don’t treat the underlying issues. You may not realize it, but you can enjoy benefits that are a direct result of chiropractic care when it comes to you allergies.
How Does Chiropractic Help?
Chiropractic adjustments release pressure on the nervous system, which allows it to work more efficiently. Both the immune system and the respiratory system rely on proper communication between the brain and spinal cord to coordinate and control their functions. If there are any interruptions in that communication system (like a misalignment), this can lead to the immune system becoming compromised. Chiropractic realigns the spine, opening the pathways of communications between the brain and spine that allow your body to properly heal itself. Chiropractic care is a holistic and natural approach to treating allergies and the body as a whole.
Not only does regular chiropractic care help support a strong immune system, but it also helps regulate cortisol levels. Cortisol levels are important during high allergy season, as many allergy sufferers also have weak adrenal gland function. Spinal misalignments can impact allergic reactions and chiropractors can help.
