Allergies and Chiropractic Care

By Dr. Veronica, Orleans Chiropractor

Many people suffer from seasonal allergies.

But fear not!

There are plenty of allergy sufferers out there who have found relief with chiropractic care.

Because the air is filled with so much pollen in the spring, your body’s immune system goes on high alert. The body of those with seasonal allergies look at them as trespassers, and dispatches histamine into your nose throat, lungs and eyes – which is where the gunky buildup comes from. Histamines are supposed to get rid of the harmful things from your body.

However, the process of these allergies can leave you feeling worse.

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.

Chiropractic care can help as we can ensure the immune system is communicating with the rest of the body correctly. 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.

Chiropractors can identify things that might be disturbing how your body is working. Proper alignment can lead to clearer paths of communication, balancing things out with your immune system.
