Before Grabbing the Allergy Meds, Try Chiropractic Care

Spring is in the air and that means pollen is, too. If you’re an allergy sufferer, this is not good news. According to the American Academy of Asthma and Immunology, approximately half of the adult population in the United States lives with known sensitivities to allergens. If you have allergies, it’s important to know how you can treat them.

When it comes to treatment, there’s no shortage of allergy medications to purchase. However, most have unpleasant side effects that can leave you drowsy and barely able to function. Fortunately, there are other alternatives. Chiropractic treatments can be an effective and natural method of easing allergy issues.

Here are ways chiropractic care helps boost your body against allergies:

Strengthens the immune system. Your spine affects nearly everything in your body. Misalignments in the spine can disrupt the brain’s lines of communication with the rest of the body. This can lead to lower immunity and your body will have a tougher time reacting to stressors. By manipulating the joints and soft tissue, a chiropractor can restore the body’s alignment and re-open essential pathways between the brain and spine.

Regulates Histamine Production: Chiropractic adjustments can help regulate histamine levels in your body. Curbing histamine production is a big help during allergy season, as this compound within the body is responsible for many allergy symptoms.

Regulates stress hormones. Many allergy sufferers have compromised adrenal glands, which makes it harder to moderate allergic reactions. Since the adrenal glands are fed directly by spinal nerves, a properly aligned spine can help regulate the amount of cortisol the body produces. This can help mitigate the severity of allergy symptoms.

Supports the respiratory system: Like the immune system, the respiratory system depends on an unimpeded flow of information to and from the brain. Chiropractic care keeps the pathways open, fortifying the respiratory system to better withstand allergic attacks.

If you suffer from allergy symptoms, you don’t have to continue to just deal with it. Contact our clinic in Clinton, MD., and our team of professionals will be happy to talk with you.
