Allergies – Can Chiropractic Care Help?

Did you know that Allergies are actually an  immune system disorder that occurs when the immune system overreacts to an allergen (dust, pollen, milk, dog or cat dander, strawberries, etc.) and the body produces too many neutralizing chemicals (especially histamines) in response?

Most would respond to this by saying something like “Okay, I get what allergies are, but this understanding of the scientific description doesn’t really help with my itchy throat, watery eyes, or runny nose, does it?”

We all know that they can be a real nuisance when you are trying to get things done.

Most of us are less concerned with what they are, and much more concerned with how to handle them. Many of us have resorted to taking an allergy pill; which can often help with the itchy discomfort, but also comes with dizziness, dry throat, or drowsiness.

So we either live with the allergies or live with not quite being ourselves during allergy season.

But is that the only option?

The answer is no. Chiropractic can be an excellent source for relieving sinus and allergy issues. In fact Chiropractors have been praised for this for over a century; people are sometimes shocked at how much of a difference it can make. This isn’t to say that Chiropractic is a way to “heal” an allergy, or necessarily eliminate an allergic reaction.

The goal of chiropractic care is to locate and correct subluxations—serious nervous system stress. Chiropractic enables the immune system to function more effectively, something all allergy sufferers need since a nervous system with less stress functions more efficiently.

In simpler terms, Chiropractic care releases the pressure on the nervous system allowing the immune system to work more effectively.

This means that your allergy symptoms can be seriously lessened, since an allergy is just an immune system disorder. This also means that you are less likely to have your allergies lead to further illness. When your immune system is strong you can weather almost anything, when your immune system is weak it is open for attack from some far more serious illnesses.
