Allergy Treatment with Chiropractic
Spring and fall in Charlotte are the perfect times to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. If you’re one of the 24 million adults in the United States who suffers from seasonal allergies, however, you’d probably rather stay indoors with a box of tissues.
Sure, you could take some allergy medication, but what if you could treat your allergies at their source? Not to mention, all allergy medications come with their fair share of side effects.
Chiropractic has the potential to provide a drug-free allergy treatment. Here’s how it works.
What Causes Allergies?
Allergies are caused by a misfunctioning of the immune system.
Essentially, your body misidentifies harmless substances like pollen or dander as dangerous invaders. Your immune system then creates and dispatches histamines to attack and expel the enemies through coughing, sneezing, and watering eyes.
Other theories suggest that some folks are just hypersensitive to stress and environmental substances which triggers an allergic response.
How Can Chiropractic Help as an Allergy Treatment?
Your central nervous system (CNS) plays a vital role in bodily communication. When your immune system responds to an allergen, it sends a message to your brain through your CNS.
Keep in mind that your CNS lives inside your spine. If you’re suffering from subluxations or misalignments in your vertebrae, this can disrupt the communication flow between your immune system and your brain-body response.
While spinal adjustments and manipulations aren’t miracle cures for all types of allergies in every person, certain patients do show improvement after treating their allergies through chiropractic care.
