Can chiropractic care address allergies?

What is an allergy?

An allergy is a hypersensitivity reaction: when you react to a substance that is considered to be harmless to most other people. Skin reactions, breathing difficulty and irritations to the sinuses are some of the most frequent allergy symptoms.

In Texas, ragweed releases pollen in the summer and fall. Depending on where you live the allergy season can start as early as January in Southern states and linger into November. If you have symptoms year round or your allergies are worse indoors, you may be allergic to dust mites or pet dander.

Chiropractic Care can address allergies

People are surprised by this one. There are beneficial effects to chiropractic adjustments on the nervous system that are well documented, it’s reported from chiropractic patients that their allergy symptoms are reduced with treating vertebral subluxations.

If you are a doubter, here is the basic science. The chiropractor uses spinal manipulation to properly align the vertebrae along the spine which allows the central nervous system to function normally. This then allows the aveoli in the lungs to take in an adequate amount of air.
