Allergies are often treated with chiropractic care. Many allergic reactions are caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system and/or respiratory system. Researchers have found that the immune and respiratory systems depend on normal communication from the brain and spinal cord to control and coordinate their functions properly.
Research has also shown that misalignments in the upper neck can disrupt this communication. Therefore, if your spine is misaligned, it could cause an imbalance in your nervous system and lead to an increase in allergic reactions.
Many people, including those suffering with asthma have experienced traumas such as injuries, accidents, or falls which can shift the bones of their spines. The good news is that chiropractors are the only profession specifically trained to assess and correct these misalignments. It just makes sense to get your spine checked to determine if chiropractic care can reduce your allergic reactions. Schedule an appointment today!
