Over 50 million Americans suffer from allergies. The estimated annual cost of allergies to the healthcare system and businesses has now reached the $18 billion mark.
Common symptoms of an allergic reaction include:
If you’re looking for an alternative option to manage or treat your allergies, you might want to consider chiropractic care. In this blog post, we will discuss how chiropractors can help with allergies.
The function of your immune and respiratory systems relies on proper communication between the spinal cord and the brain. Nerve or joint misalignments can interrupt this communication, which can compromise your immune system and lead to allergic and asthmatic symptoms.
With chiropractic adjustment and spinal manipulation, you can restore proper alignment and open the necessary pathways of communication between the brain and spine. Other than boosting the immune system, chiropractic also helps regulate the rush of histamine and the amount of cortisol production. Cortisol is an anti-inflammatory hormone that can help prevent allergic reactions and symptoms.
Chiropractic care also involves nutritional and lifestyle counseling. Your chiropractors can give you helpful advice to manage and prevent your allergic reactions.
