Can chiropractic care treat seasonal allergies? Yes, it can!
If you are one of the roughly 25% of Canadians who dreads spring, there may be a way to combat the sneezing, and itchy, red watering eyes. All allergies are caused by an immune system response to substances it deems foreign. This can include pollen, dust, pet dander, foods, and countless other factors. In response to the stimuli, the body overproduces neutralizing chemicals like histamines.
How Can Chiropractic Care Treat Seasonal Allergies?
The immune system and respiratory system depend on the communication signals between the brain and spinal cord. When there are interruptions from a subluxation, immunity can be compromised. Example: An irritation in the upper cervical joint can heighten or produce allergic and even asthmatic symptoms.
A chiropractor can provide the proper spinal assessments and adjustments, in order to restore the alignment. Thereby the communication between the spine and brain can be rehabilitated. By repairing the balance of allergy-fighting hormones, many seasonal allergy sufferers find themselves less reliant on anti-histamines.
